I wanted to start with black and white and somehow bring bold color into the piece. I prepped the page with white gesso. Then I put some black gesson on a piece of plastic wrap and spritzed some water on it and brushed it out into a thin layer. I layed this onto the white page in the center. I took a piece of shelving mat and used it to texture some of the black gesso around the black area. Then I let that dry completely. Next I took some white foam letters that spelled out the word COLOR and tried several different methods to put bright color on them. Finally used my gellatos to get a nice bold color on them that seemed to stay. I wrote the quote in white signo pen and also wrote "Live you life in" above the letters that I placed on the page. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. It almost looks like what I envisioned in my head. That almost never happens.....LOL.
Thanks for stopping by.
