The texture on this piece is just fabulous and makes me happy! The crackle, the expanding mousse, the chalk paste they all play really well together and offer very different textures, which is what I was going for.
The combination of Golden high flow, acrylic inks, and Lukas paint made it all come alive.
I even used the expanding mousse with the Mediterranean stencil and it created a stunning effect.
The inspiration for this was, well.. to be honest, it was stress. Do ever feel like you have all kinds of feelings all at once?
That’s where I was at when I created this and I share in the video how it’s ok to be brave and frightened, strong and weak, loved and unlovable.
I share about giving ourselves grace to feel all the feels and how creating allows us to say what we can’t and that it’s so therapeutic.
