It is exciting to have Zinia of Ziniaredo blog sharing a project today. You have probably seen Zinia in lots of different places – she pops up everywhere with tons of ideas. Today she is sharing a video of her shattered glass technique.
Click on the video below to see all the ins and outs, then stop over at her blog for oodles more inspiration.
For this art journal page I want to revisit a page I created last year. I really loved the shattered glass effect on the background of my ballerina page so I wanted to use it again. Coincidentally, I picked similar colors to the ones I used before (it’s clear I’m a lover of blues and pinks) but this technique is absolutely perfect for any color combination.
I used a light layer of color on my background, and lightly blended it to cover the whole page. The using short brush strokes I added bits of color all around the page. The directionality of my strokes goes on a circular motion but again you can experiment and try different variations if you want.
I included some white strokes to add more light to the page and bring everything together.
I really love this page as is and I could have stopped there but I decided to take it a step further and doodle a focal point in the middle of everything. I used the same colors with my Distress Oxide re-inkers and gel medium.
Thanks for joining us today. We will see you real soon! ♥
