Swirls on Cardboard

I love greens and blues!  This piece of cardboard (11 x 12 inches) started with several coats of various shades of green and blue acrylic paint.  I also used a blue reinker…Stream…is the name of it.  It is very potent but mixed with lots of white,  produces a lovely shade of blue.  I also used some Golden’s green gold heavy body acrylic.  I have very few Golden paints but green gold is one that I will never run out of, if I can prevent it.  I glued down the collage pieces (painted phone book pages).  Then a dabbed on a little more acrylic paint and finished with black India ink with a dip pen.  I also used some white India ink but it didn’t show up very well.

  1. Beautiful, as always! Mary I had question for you. You had mentioned that you were taking the doodles class with Traci Bautista. Does she let you download and keep the videos? I was thinking of taking the class but may not be able to get to see all the videos by the end of August.


    1. Yes, Traci lets you download the videos but no sharing with someone else, of course. She will have new sessions beginning the last of Aug., I think, it is. She had a discount price for a short time before the last session which would save you some money…maybe she will do that again.
