This was a very quick lesson this week for Lifebook - a bonus lesson from Danita.
It's a paint over technique, where you pull out a picture from a magazine, newspaper etc, gesso it + paint over it.
And its a fun little thing to do when your stumped creatively or when you only have a short amount of time when you can be creative.
I would imagine it would be a really cool techniques to use in journal pages or as background for collages.
In my image you can see there are places where the original image is poking through. Which I think adds to the depth + layers on the page.
I think I will keep it in my tool box of ideas to jump start those weeks where the painting is stilted + the ideas are not fresh.
Do you have those weeks? Weeks where nothing works? How would you jump start your creativity? I would love it if you shared with us.
P.S I hope you all had a fabulous Easter + are you experiencing a huge sugar crash today? I am suffering from an over stuffing of food in general - no more food for me this week, I am sure I ate my weekly caloric allowance in the last three days! x
