This whimsical piece is made from my usual haunts, acrylic, water color paper, canvas board, water color, pen, scarp book paper, sparkles, pencil, and markers. And please don't forget the bees wax. But a new addition, the type " Mary Jane walked along and the wagon went bump, bump, bump, and the pumpkin went jump, jump, jump on Halloween night," was taken from a 1930's children's book.
TIP OF THE DAY!
In addition, this painting has some great effects. The background was done with a palette knife. They can be purchased at any paint supply store. A knife isn't only great for mixing colors but also to spread the color thinly and then build layers to give a great texture. The knife can be used for ALL different types of art genres. If you like nature pieces try using the knife to make the mountains. The sharp edge of the knife will give you a great even line. Don't forget about the knife great blending abilities, try painting a mountain and then blending a touch of snow on the peaks! Play around with the knife (although you might not want to run with it) in art the knife has wonderful purposes and should never be left out of your collection.
