Sunny Days – mixed media art tags

Hey there, Lulu Art lovelies!!

Sunny Days header

Dani Choate (a.k.a. pyglet whispers) here!

Today, I get to spend some arty time with you all on the LuluArt blog and I just can’t wait to show you how I created these two sunny day tags using fab products from luluart.com.au

So… take a seat, grab a coffee, figure out where the pause button and the speed controls on Youtube are…  as you might want to catch a still or slow down the process for a closer look somewhere along the way…

…and most of all… enjoy the ride!!

I started some pages by basically, just having a play. I used good quality paper and went with whatever ideas came to mind.

A blue background…

a deep teal swirl… lime and yellow dots…  and a white overlaid stencil.

Next, I took some prints from the wet page.

This is something I often do, just simply to dry my work off  a bit so I can keep creating…  (I am more than a bit impatient with drying times!!)

In this video…I finally went with the tags and once I had the idea… I ran with it!

Hopefully you enjoy the process!!

Have fun recreating something like this for yourself…  and tag me if you do, so I can come take a look!!

Much fun and many wishes… ’til next time!
