Paint Party Friday #52

It all started with Carolyn Dube from A Colourful Journey´s video. She had this green/blue/stencil/ink thing going on. Woooow! I thought. Preeeeetty! Want. Now.
From the beginning our paths differed because ... I couldn´t get things right. The seamlessly applied ink on her page was a chequered look in mine.  And the ink through stencil didn´t work either, so I turned the stencil and used it as a stamp (no, I wasn´t letting that ink going to waste ;) ).
Color blocking is in fashion for clothes and seems to be entering the apinting world too. I put my aquarelle pencils to work.  

On the other side I used the ink pad as a shape stamp. Aquarelle doodles. Got bored because ... it was not going as I had envisioned.
Time for a drastic measure. Butter acrylic applied with brayer. Too much acrylic made some peaks. Called it "good texture" and moved on.
Applied two greens with brush around the corner. 

 Have I told you it´s Paint Party Friday´s first birthday? Go and say Happy birthday to Kristin and Eva! If you´ve known me for a while, you know what is coming next! Yes! Multi projects! No acrylic is left behind.
Second layer. I´ve been watching Donna Downey´s Inspiration Wednesdays and she is doing a lot of circles at the moment.  Do I like my take? No, not really. I covered it up with corn acrylic which gave the page a golden light but didn´t cover the circles. More on that one next week. 

Some fingerprints on side B. I quite like the irl version and might call it done. On the other hand this is all about experimenting with layers so I might keep going.

These are my actual paper paintings but I´ve also been working on digital things these days. I have started using My Memories products and next week I will be reviewing the My Memories Suite v.3 software. Very intuitive and versatile. I will reviewing it this weekend and next week I will be giving away one copy of the software!

To participate in the give away leave me a comment from today on, telling me which your favourite My Memories kit is. Are you a follower of my blog? I´ll pop another paper with your name on it for a second chance as a thank you. :)
