ARTBYMIRAN - AUTUMN ANNIE & DRAWING GUM!!


Morning all, it's my turn to host the Artbymiran Blog today.

Today I would like to share a card I made using the gorgeous image Loving Autumn Annie

Although Annie is coloured using Promarkers, the background was stamped and painted with Brushos (and this was all done after colouring her in!!)

I have just discovered the wonderful world of drawing gum!! Oh my its fun, hehe

For those of you who have never heard of it before, it is a liquid, that once painted over an area, dries and then protects it from inks and paints etc. Once your inks/paints have then dried, you gently rub off the drawing gum to be left with a clear area underneath.

In this case, I had already coloured Annie up and wasn't sure how well it would work over my markers, but i'm pleased to say, very well :) She was stamped directly over and painted directly over and yet she is as clean as a whistle now the gum has been removed :) I can see this having lots of uses, but it certainly worked well to enable me to create a background for an already coloured image. Although I could of used a traditional mask, this would not of course been any good for keeping the paint off.

Don't forget to visit the Art by Miran shop to see all the wonderful images.
