Sail Away – Magenta DT Post

I love the versatility of Nuance powders. I decided to try them on Yupo paper and was thrilled with the “magical” result.

I made puddles of color on my palette with Nuance and plenty of water, then dipped my brush in one of the colors at a time and added it to the Yupo.  I tipped the paper and allowed the colors to flow and swirl around the page. I added more color as needed with the brush, just touching the tip of the brush to the page and letting the circles of color expand or dragging them around the page. Once it had dried thoroughly, I used Cobalt Archival Ink for the There is Magic sentiment and Compass Rose stamps and to sponge color through the Sail Boat stencil. I applied white paint through the Stars stencil with a sponge.

I hope you try this technique and have as much fun as I did.

Collaged napkin pieces and dictionary page scraps onto a canvas page in my Dina Wakley Media Journal.  Added a photo of a hawk that has been nesting in our back yard. Used Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks in Sky and Lapis and some scribbling with a Stabilo All pencil.
