Hi Stamps and Stencils lovers! I am Ioulia Deligiannidou (julD) from Greece. I live in Thessaloniki, it is a seaside city. I am so happy to be a Guest Designer at Stamps and Stencils. It is such an honour to be here today. Thank you so much.
I loved painting and crafting from my early years, but instead of becoming an artist I became an engineer who loves to create things in her free time. So, crafting is my hobby. I love to create with whatever I can get my hands on. Mixed media fascinated me because I can combine many techniques and materials. My favourites are clay and texture in paintings.
My project is a mixed media painting on mdf.
At first, I applied modelling paste with stencils on an mdf board..
Then, I used a coat of white gesso and when it was dry, I added two colours of acrylic paint. While the paints were still wet, I dropped drops of alcohol. The paint reacts and creates a circular effect.
I used oil paint and wiped it back with a cloth. I rub with sandpaper the flowers.
I stamped with circles, words and butterflies stamps.
I stuck gold leaf to the petals of the big flower.
I applied gesso and acrylic paints with alcochol drops on a second mdf board to use it as a frame. I wiped back the alcohol with kitchen roll.
I stuck the two mdf boards together and I applied gold paste at the edges.
I hope you like it.
