2nd and 3rd Folk Art Classes

As mentioned earlier I did a layout on weekend but I think I am not ready to share with all of you just yet as I need to do a little touch-up here and there.

On to my folk art classes on Saturday and Sunday morning last week - I painted two boards, one for my cousin who is getting engaged soon and another one "just" as I wanted to try the Jo Sonja's iridescent colours that I bought which looks nice on a black background.

This one is for my cousin, I coloured the background with Jo Sonja's background colour in soft white and those are lilac flowers. (this photo is taken before final touch-up as you can see a little bit of small black spot here and there)

I love the edges as it give a nice dramatic look - I used Jo Sonja's paynes grey colour and coloured the edges and roughly touched it with Jo Sonja's rich gold colour.

This one painted using Jo Sonja's black gesso and iridescent colours. Iridescent colours appear milky white until dried and it works best on black background. Iridescent colours has only 6 ranges and I have all of them which is gold iridescent, green iridescent, red iridescent, violet iridescent, blue iridescent and turquoise iridescent.

Those are hydrangea flowers.

Go here if you want to read more and thanks for dropping by.
