Fireflies - new collage (and class!)

Hi, how was your week?
Mine was busy for sure - but many things got finalised and finished, amazing classes were held, and it all happened in just a few days...

First of all - I can finally see this collage in flesh. The idea I had in my head was waiting for months - there was never enough time to work on it. My fault, I know...
Fireflies - collage on canvas (20x50 cm /8x20'')

My point was to try as much colour as I could, playing with my favourite techniques in Art Alchemy Impasto and Mettalique Paints, creating the multi-layered, deep and colourful look. I dripped the paint, used stencils for paint and wax, worked with embellishments, paper and photo. So may fields to experiment and get fingers dirty... especially if you love finger-painting as much as I do!
Why "Fireflies"? Well, as you can see I went a bit crazy with splatters and dots - I guess they are my latest obsession - and when you take it all together with the dark blue tones it all brought to my  mind the idea of a person surrounded by the group of fireflies... you know, I will always go for a bit of magic in my life!
But the best part of this all is - "Fireflies" is my new collage class! 

If you will decide to sign up, you will be able to build the layers with papers, paint and metallic paints, work on building a fantasy character and play with my favourite Art Alchemy products: Impasto and Mettalique Paints, Metallique Waxes... and more! If you are an art journaler - like me - you will be able to easily adapt these techniques to your journal pages - in a smaller scale of course, as this project is one of my bigger longer canvases!
