Day 24 - Golden

Today's painting has some sewing and it also has some Golden gold metallic paint (the circles on the lower right).














As well as making my own stencils, I have also been making myself some stamps, so all the marks I make are my own.  They also all relate to my theme of "boundaries".

Just to challenge myself, I have started tomorrow's painting and it is going to be all in neutral colours - will I manage it without attacking it with some magenta or some of the fluorescent paints, I wonder?

Rolina,
I love everything about this - especially the golden circles.
Can't wait to see tomorrow's "neutral" painting. We'll see huh? :o)

This so interesting, so much going on... keeps me investigating. Hmm... I have a feeling there will be some brights tomorrow....ha ha ha

Rolina said...

Thanks Sue, April, Connie and Sheila - I will try hard tomorrow but it might just kill me!

great looking stamps, would work great with a gelli plate :)

good luck with your neutral painting :D but don't fight it if the bright colours want to show up ;)

Rolina said...

Thanks Jennifer - I so want to do the gelli plate thing, might cheat and buy one of the long-lasting ones though.

I bought the 8 by 10 a few years ago and its still fine even after not cleaning it lol would love the big one but its like £60 o.0

Rolina said...

I think I would stick with the 8x10 - £60 is a bit pricey!

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

yeah considering how many pencils I could buy instead :p

Rolina, have you made your own stamps using matte board? I love those the best. I learned how by viewing Carrie Burns Brown video. I attach the matte board with a big ATG dispenser that holds double stick tape, and then coat the completed surface with matte medium. They last forever and are all my own! Love the experimentation of your paintings! Fun stuff!

Thanks Karen, I have just been using foam, but will try the matt board (I have plenty odds and ends here). Also thanks for mentioning Carrie Burns Brown, I shall look her up!
