The host of September Ambassadors' Spotlight is Vasilis Kontos and the theme is "shabby summer memories with impasto and liquids". As each month our talented Ambassadors prepared beautiful projects. Below you can see creations by Vasilis, Riikka, Kassa and Aga.
We said goodbye this summer too, keeping beautiful memories from our holidays.My inspiration for this project comes from the colors of the greek islands, the rust from the sea ,a window looking at the sea and the beautiful Geek sunsets.All my project begins with a sea wood ,that I kept from the holidays, woods you can find to the beaches.I used impasto for the background blending with water and white gesso so having with dry brush the shabby effect, also used the Prussian blue for the window and white crackle for more shabby and vintage look.For the rust effect to my metallic embellishments I used red rust paste and crushed amber from jewel effect paste.Finally I used for shades burnt umber liquid acrylic and the new wax stoned wood.
Dear friends I hope you like it, and waiting all of you next summer to Greece…<3
