June Pfaff Daley's Cupcake Sprinkles (S011)
First, using a Gelli Arts plate and a brayer I rolled some acrylic paint over the surface.
As you can see below, I mixed the colors together a bit.
I purchased a hunk of this floor adhesive stuff at Northern Tool & Equipment.
I think it is for the garage floor.
To me, it looks like a great stamp! Since there are circular elements in the finer part of the stencil I thought it would be a visually interesting background for the cupcake.
Using several pieces of watercolor paper and a variety of liquid acrylic paint and spray acrylic paint
I applied the paint, pressed the gelli plate surface with the improvised stamp, and pressed the paper onto it. I did this repeatedly and varied the paint colors slightly, as well as using the tool as a stamp, but I did stay on one side of the color wheel to avoid making "mud".
Here are the papers....
Now, I plan to stencil opaque white paint through the cupcake opening.
I apologize that the images here are flipped sideways.
I don't like it but I don't know what to do about it.
I wanted this white opaque paint because I am either going to apply another paint color over the surface, or simply use the white to allow the "toppings" to show.
Using the small circular openings I add decoration to the cupcake icing.
I added a few more elements that I will alter a bit later.
I'm adding marker to the openings on the base.
Now, some Sakura "Souffle" pen marks
Using a cheap set of office supply stencils that I carry around when I travel
(and I am traveling as I finish this project) I write on the surface
some more dots are added with the Sakura pens.
On this paper I elected to leave the cupcake white and work into the background instead.
Here are my finished pieces. I like the partial words visible in the background.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will bounce on over to the other blogs on this hop!
