I was so excited to see the sparkly iridescent effects from Pebeo acrylics...had to order them right away on Amazon Prime for instant gratification. Used them to print a background then the decision- what next? I had been cutting out profiles and making foam stamps from images in People Magazine. I embellished the stamps with marks to give texture and delineation and used a stencil and Gelli plate to add the features and scrolls. When I was finished I saw night and beauty and recalled the poem I had recited in 10th grade poetry reading-- by Lord Byron
I don't really love this journal spread, but I wanted to share these paints. They are delightful on the Gelli plate.
|"SHE walks in beauty, like the night|
|Of cloudless climes and starry skies,|
|And all that's best of dark and bright|
|Meets in her aspect and her eyes;|
|Thus mellow'd to that tender light|
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.
