Our Summer of Color continues with week #4 and a combination that I’m not too accustomed to using. Red + Red + Metallic is the challenge for this week. I will admit I’m not a big metallic user, although I have metallic paints, markers and even pastes, I simply don’t use them on a regular basis. So, this week I’m excited to create something new and unique.
I gathered every medium I could find in shades of red and a gold metallic.
I layered 2 shades of red on my art journal page and once dry, I randomly spread some Gold Interference gel from DecoArt Media Line. It gave the page a wonderful gold shimmer.
I remembered that I had some Gelli Plate® prints in red, so I cut out some hearts, adhered them with gel medium and once dry added some Gold Interference on top. The Sharpie gold paint marker was perfect for outlining.
This week was a really unique combination for me and one that I normally would not have selected. I love that this challenge is doing just that, challenging me.
