What is deep in the forest? Is it a scary, spooky places? Or is it a magical wonder world? Well in my fantasy it is definitely a magical world of all kinds of wild animals and creatures, and as my heart always went for winged things, this time couldn’t be others as well.
Take flight… into the great unknown… deep in the forest! That’s my imagination.
And it all began with a simple layer of gelli printed tissue paper on my spread:
Then I added some scrap left-overs and a piece of net, and blended all together with gesso.
I applied a layer of molding paste mixed with acrylics, through a forest stencil:
And then I used graphite texture paste to apply my first layer of winged creatures, some small birds. The ephemera and the text is from 7 dots studio.
And to add some more mystical creatures I used soft gel mixed with art sugar through Finnabair’s butterfly stencil. When it dried I added some shadows with charcoal.
And tadaah I took flight into the unknown deep in the forest:
I am sharing my spread with my friends at Art journal journey october’s prompt.
