Prima Oil Pastels w/ Gabrielle Pollacco Stamps: Video Tutorial

It's Tracey here to share a technique video with you featuring the Watercolor Wishes February Mixed Media/Creativity Add On.

I'm so excited each month to see what fresh new mixed media product(s) Melinda has included in the kit and add ons. The February Mixed Media/Creativity Add On includes Prima Soft Oil Pastels. I've not worked with oil pastels before, so enjoyed spending some time experimenting with several types of paper and inks to see what would work best to color the 49 and Market Gabi's Hibiscus flowers that I fussy cut for the focal flowers on a set of mixed media thank you cards.
I created a technique video sharing how I used these Prima Soft Oil Pastels.

The Kaisercraft Oui Oiu paper is dry brushed with white gesso then
edged with blue oil pastels. I used the Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom
stencil to apply texture then rubbed with Aquamarine Viva Gold
to highlight. Pastel Art Gems add such lovely dimension.

I wanted a soft backdrop for these sweet flowers, so I layered
cheesecloth, white feathers, and burlap threads over one of the Momenta Watercolor Doilies.

I adore texture, so I used a mix of Minnie Pearl and Coral See Prills
sprinkled with Prima Pearl Glass Glitter across the card. You 
can see a little of the stenciled texture peeking out from under the
cheese cloth too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
