Enjoy Life Keep It Real @ DS4J

{My DT work for DS4J}

Hi everyone! How is life on your end? I'm good. As promised, I am back again within two days after my last post and here is to share my recent creation for Digistamps4Joy mid-challenge reminder. My teammate Karin is hosting this month and she has chosen summer theme for the optional twist in the Anything Goes challenge that ends at the end of this month.

I have created a quick and easy mixed media card with Clivia digital image you can get from DS4J shop
Some close up pictures: 
 I started the background on a 200gsm drawing paper by applying texture paste through a stencil to create some flower patterns. After it is dried naturally, placed down some drywall tapes on the paper then I used a brush to 'paint' the surface with gesso and let dry.
 Next was coloring process which is always my favorite part. I used Deco Art paints to color the background by brushing down the colors here and there and spritz water randomly. I used heat gun to dry the first layer of colors. Then I used Buncho watercolors add some splash here and there. 
 If you look at the small squares, they're patterns created from drywall tape I peel off after I have painted with Deco Art colors. The bubbles formed from heat gun blow was on purpose as I wanted texture. You can see similar technique I did in my art journal page.
And so this is how it was before I lay down the flowers. I used Faber Castell watercolor pencil and aqua brush to color the flowers.
That's it for today. I hope you will get some inspirations and ideas from my artwork today and hopefully you will play along in our monthly challenge before 31st August.

The challenges I'm taking part:
1. Creative Artiste Mixed Media : Anything Goes Mixed Media
2. Ooh La La Creations : Flowers
