Brushos, Canvas and Mixed Media art, Swallowtail

Flooding or flying

A catch up from last weeks class… another sample. Sorry been rubbish at blogging of late…

This brusho layout was a rescue of something that didn’t go to plan.  I find quite often brushos lead to unexpected results.  Usually I like them and it’s fine, but occasionally not so much.  This was one of those occasions…


This was a result of flooding the paper with too much water and pigment.  It is pretty gorgeous still but I had no idea what to do with it.

Then I realised I could still a resist technique. So I stamped Swallowtail in Versamark, and clear embossed it.  Now I had a shiny but transparent butterfly. So next I added Prussian Blue Brushos to the centre of the butterfly area and plenty of sprayed water…. and this is the beauty that emerged…


I love … no truly LURVE this.

Happy crafting!
