Dramatic journal cover - Prima Marketing

Hello hello hello! It's Wednesday already! Maybe time to add some color? Yesterday a blog post went live in Prima's blog (link) showing a few way to color Prima's blooms. There's also a video by Song Li you don't want to miss!

I love to give the beautiful Prima blooms a touch of my own so I usually color them a little. It gives the blooms a personal touch and makes them more "mine". So I usually also add a touch of color even to the colored ones, not just white ones.

There’s so many great products in the Prima mediums but for this cover I went with my favorite combination – gesso and Mica. Instead of white gesso which I use more commonly I used the black one creating a dramatic journal cover. The fun thing with this coloring technique is that the blooms can start off with any color and they all look good together in the end!

I started the cover with some Black Gesso and then made the composition using different blooms, metals and also an Archival Cast heart. I treated that using the tricks from my canvas workshop (link) and finished the cover with Mica. I used three different powders from the new release - Iridescent Lilac, Black Cherry and Pale Silver.

Thank you for stopping today!
