Sometimes I'm Overemotional

Hello, Friends!
Just before going away on my new art journey, I'd like to show you my new double canvas.
I created this piece during my Overemotional classes. We take two canvases and put them together to make a perfect whole. A story about emotions, moods and colors.


I had this idea one day when I felt like creating a larger scale collage and I didn't have a big enough canvas at hand. What I did (and what we also do during this class) was that I took some masking tape and wrapped it around the edges of two canvases to put them together. After I finished, I simply cut them back in half and had a perfect diptych. :)
Let me also add that masking tape makes for a perfect background start in this case.


This class makes it possible to express our feelings via rich textures and all kinds of delicious details.
We get our hands dirty with gesso (and I mean A LOT of it!), heavy gel medium, some stamping to add depth, and of course colors reflecting your personality and moods.


We either play with my beloved Primary Elements Artist Pigments - like:


- or you could spray your heart away with a wonderful new hit from Prima - Color Bloom Sprays:


If you're curious, here are some of the other supplies that I used:


I can't tell you enough how magical these classes are - for me as a teacher, too...
I think it's amazing that we can express all kinds of emotions with a little bit of paint and some lace flowers. ;)

Lots of hugs and wishing you a wonderful creative weekend!
