Because I’m Fearless – Kristy Abela – Mood Board Inspiration

This is my intro into 2020. I’m hoping for a cracker. I have loved these chippies and wanted to do something like this for a while now. A real celebration of t’weens. My guys n I are Marvel freaks so this one is for all of you… Hope you have fun playing with the Moodboard & Happy New Year!

I took an 8 x 8 canvas panel and  applied some modelling past through a stencil. While it was still wet I added some punched out bricks from A Dusty Attic brick wall chipboard and broken Bits no. 6. the modelling paste will act as a glue as well as a background texture. I painted all the chipboard and the panel with white Gesso then I used my Lindy’s sprays to add colour.

To achieve that amazing cloud of colour in the background I used some  translucent paints from Paper Artsy. With a makeup sponge, I dabbed in layers to create the blends of brights and then topped it off with some light shading in blue. The darker colour also works as a border.
I used some tribal arrows to help physically balance my comic clouds. I did cut
these  in the middle to make the most of them. that way I could could stretch
out the length or create the illusion of more. 
some Lindy’s embossing powder I covered my words. I deliberately left
it bumpy so I could add layers with Black shading (inkpad and blending tool) & splatters.
Finishing it off with a this amazing title cut by Dusty attic for an Antonis Tzandinakis project. 
I think it looks much better here … Don’t you?
I used a little bit of Gold Wax to highlight some of the background. 
A better look at the colours and the texture for you…
