deeper into the book of wishes

Yesterday I showed you the first page of my latest project – the first one I could call finished (ish).

This is the latest page, I began playing with over the weekend.
Starting out with gesso and inks, layered up and finished with hot glue blobs
Inspired by the very lovely and talented Contadina K

Author: Mixy

artist, thing maker & idea magpie. I am making it all up, one bit at a time.

  1. I think the colors are so beautiful. They are like little jewels, all together on the page. At first, I thought the lines could even be sewn into the piece, then realized they weren’t. Wonderful!! And I love all the different textures that you built up with the gesso. (I’m guessing that’s how you did it … although perhaps I’m wrong.) So far, this is a wonderfully lovely project!


    1. Yep – that’s exactly it…. playing at mark making in wet gesso. It really is a lovely medium! + the magic of hot glue! Certainly something I’ll be playing more with! (Those little doodley lines – they are fine wispiy strands of glue too) Best fun times!! ๐Ÿ˜€
