Fall Colors come together.

I created this canvas on the spur
of the moment.   I felt like the air would leave my body if I did not create.

It started with an 8 x 8 canvas stretched on a wood frame.  I then added a decor paper to the entire piece with watered Aleenes glue as an adhesive medium.

If you have ever used Golden Fluid Acrylics you understand my love for them.  This piece uses Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Interference Oxide Green.  The transparency allows an awesome depth of layering.  I also added Art Anthology Imperial purple allowing some to remain untouched, some with the interference overlay.  

My fingers are always in use when creating and I love the uneven marks I can make.  I also used a jar dipped in the Azo gold for random circles.   I am not sure which context I like best. 

I used an original stencil cut by me painted with a brush which gave me irregular coverage, allowing for more play with a pentel pen.

Collage # 3572 Harlequin Disc ATCs was cut and became a focal point.  I then added washi tapes and the holographic stickers we love so much.  

That's my Sunday, how about yours?

Enjoy and share some love, repost this please!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
