Since February is the month of love we are exploring Aphrodite, the goddess of love, in the Moonshine class. I decided to go a slightly different route and do an art journal spread using spray inks.
I thought of what resembles love for me, which is your traditional roses, lace, ribbon, and hearts. So for my background I added all of these elements. I then gessoed over all of this and applied my goddess.
I used a stencil with modeling paste for the roses.
Next I started spraying some spray inks down. I wanted a soft pastel feel to this. I used a love mask i cut myself to add even more texture.
I then painted Aphrodite with acrylic paint, colored pencils, and pastels.
Lastly I added on my quote using magazine paper that I sprayed with more vibrant spray inks.
I am going to submit this to three different challenges: Stampendous Love Letters challenge, S.W.A.T All you need is Love challenge, and Simon Says Stamp Paste challenge.
