July inspiration by Darianna Neko

July 21, 2018

Hello, dear readers of the Art Playground Blog! Daria here with you today :)

I want to show you my new canvas "We are all dreamers!" that I have made for July Challenge. 

At first I wanted to create something tender, but when I've looked at the July color scheme I understood that I must get my boxes of inks! :) 



In this work I decided to use transparent plastic, that I cut into circles of different diametres. I applied transparent texture paste on it through the floral stencil  and  than sprinkled on the top  the transparent dry glitter Clear Rock from Ranger.

After that I applied alcohol inks  on it - purple,blue, yellow,orange, pink and I let them flow out and let the inks dry.

Than I used this circles to build the composition.



The fantasy picture with the girl that affectionately hugging a tiger is in the focus.

I've built built the composition while supporting the scene.

The ornate chipboard seems to extend the girl's hair. I specifically wanted to achieve this effect!)


The base of the canvas - thick cardboard, that I've wrapped  with a cloth. Than I covered the background with the white gesso and applied the texture paste on it through the floral stencil.  After that I covered the background by Purely White EP from Lindy's Stamp Gang before painting Magicals to achieve Resist-effect.To make this colorful background I used Magical pigments from Lindy's- Yellow rose of Texas, Hydrangea Blue and Sweet Violet Purple teal Magicals and Octoberfest Orange Shaker.  I did the same thing with my clay molds .



When the composition was glued I applied different toppings - glitter, violet mica and transparent glass balls of different diameters.

For the finish touch I splattered the project with  black and white inks.


That's all.

Hope you like it!
