You guys know I am die hard fan of Liquitex Matte Medium but, oh my…. Deco Arts Matte medium is quickly becoming my go to. I love it!
I love this cutie for so many reasons… but the main reason is because I feel like so many around me need hope…
Hope: Websters definition:
Hope that healing will happen, hope that forgiveness will happen, hope that you are in the place that you should be. Hope that out of tragedy love will grow. HOPE that it will get better.
I put my book pages down with Matte Medium
Dried the matte medium and then sketched a butter fly
Mixing Americana (mint julep) and fluid acrylic titanium white I painted around the butterfly.
painted the body with fluid acrylic carbon black
with a variety of fluid acrylic colors I painted a pattern on the butterfly.
Painted Hope with titanium white.
I painted some half circles with American Sea Breeze and titanium white, then, Using Raw Umber antiquing cream I went over the the entire piece.
When using the antiquing cream you need to seal it. I used the ultra matte varnish.
I put the finishing touches on it with charcoal pencil, micro pen and a little bit of titanium white, and then sealed it with Ultra matte varnish.
Hope gives wings to our dreams…. hope is the thing that keeps us going.
Be inspired, Create… and know that you are loved!
