Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I would like to welcome the new followers, thank you for your interest in my blog. And again I would like to thank everyone for your visits and kind comments.
Along with the beautiful Twinkling H2O's, members of Design by Ryn's Design Team also received a jar of Radiant Gels from ColourArte to play with. It's a very cool medium, a dimensional paint with glimmer that you can create texture on your art either by using a stencil or paint using a palette knife to create mounds and peaks. It also blends with other paint when wet, which I found during my experimentation. I'm still learning what it can do and there are many wonderful colours to be tempted by :)
I used Designs by Ryn's - Hibiscus Stencil with the Radiant Gels.
The background is a combination of Distress Paints and inks and some clear embossing. I also used Design by Ryn's fabulous Ginkgo stencil.
I used a palette knife to add the Radiant Gel (African Jade) over Designs by Ryn Hibiscus stencil. I used a heat gun to dry which will cause some bubbling but I was OK with the added texture. Because the colour of the Radiant Gel is close to the background colour the image didn't stand out enough for me so I placed the stencil back over the gel (when dry) and added a little white Acrylic paint.
On this next design below you can see the glimmer of the Gel which I left alone this time :)
I added the Radiant Gel first, let it dry, sprinkled Brusho powders over top and spritzed with water. Next I stamped a few leaves from Design by Ryn's Hibiscus stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
