We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
"Little Gidding"

Realms of Fantasy

Such a miserable cold and wet day, I'm going to have a further play with some new acquisitions - Pebeo Fantasy paints - Prisme and Moon.  Both have their own properties. Had an initial play last week, and although I think they are mainly for creating jewellery, there are definite possibilities for other stuff.  Just a couple of blobs, and left to its own devices, it creates its own patterns.

Tried using tube outliner on a tile - needs more practice!  Put too much paint on, so it spilled over the edge, but you get the idea!

Depending whether you blob it, dab it, pull it, or brush it, different effects can be achieved, and mixing colours is fun too.  I like these butterflies (using die-cut board).

One thing to remember, it takes an age to dry.  Did all this with a friend, and had to transport home - put them into a box lid, in the boot of my car.  By the time I got home, they had slipped into each other, and stuck together - oh well - lesson learned!
