Dark and Light

Hi everybody!

My newest creation with the GelliPlate is called Dark and Light.


I started with a black journal insert (Dylusions) and made a print with some cardboard and Dina Wakley Media Paint in Gilt.


The next layer was Dina Wakley Media Paint in Magenta, and I put on some 'bubbled plastic' for structure.


I put on another layer with white acrylic paint and little bubbled plastic, but I forgot to make a picture of it. After that I used the cardboard again, with yellow paint. I always use a 'Slow Drying Medium', it helps spreading the paint easily on the plate.


The next step was orange acrylic paint with a Dylusions stencil, cobwebs. Since I've started 'everything artsy' in my life I created a love for Halloween and everything what comes with it 🙂


It was not really dark and grungy enough for me, so I went on with Dina Wakley Media Paint in fuchsia, it is a deep, dark pinkish colour which I love. And, now the skulls stencil of Dylusions, one of my most favourite stencils of Dyan.

And wow, do you see the result on picture 3? I really love it. It has colour, it is grungy and you can see the skulls. I decide to draw a face with light colours, white acrylic as a good base layer. Pastel pencils from Derwent, and I coloured the iris with Neocolor Crayons. And this is what I made finally:


I hope you like the result.
