If you have issue 182 of Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine then you might have spotted my interview and this layering colors project already?! It’s a mix of crafty and arty because I am using some stamping but I also drew a flower for it too. So it is mix and match mixed media! I talk you through my creative process for this in the video as it wasn’t one of my completely organic pieces as you will hear. I also show you how to layer colors with acrylic inks to get this lovely colorful effect.

And don’t forget to scroll on down to get a close up of the all that texture!
