ARTastic in October

ARTastic Challenge has another fabulous challenge this month.  This is the beautiful inspiration piece by Australian artist Lyn Butchart:


The challenge criteria this month is MIXED MEDIA + INK.  

I created a collage background and added some spray ink.  I took my inspiration from the colour palette. After a semi-disastrous beginning (not happy with my first choice of bubblegum pink) I ended up having a lot of fun layering and layering and layering! Ink spray, tissue paper, gesso, acrylic paint, modelling paste. Sometimes you just have to let it happen.

Kaisercolour Spearmint acrylic paint
Tissue paper
Kaisercraft Quarters stencil
Little Birdie Mixed Media modelling paste
