The book "Altered Surfaces" is this week's pick. It is by Chris Cozen and is published by Design Originals (who also published my books).
This book is all about "Using Acrylic Paints with Gels, Mediums, Grounds & Pastes". I already use Gel Medium for a lot of things, as a transfer medium, as an adhesive, etc. My plan for this week is to do at least six 4" x 4" canvases using the techniques in the book, then making them into completed collages. I've got a lot of great "tools" like paints, mediums, molding pastes, etc., but they sit on the shelf because I haven't taken the time to play with them. It's time!
I'll be back in a couple of days to show you what I've done. Hope you are finding time in your life for some art-play, journaling, or some other soul-satisfying pastime.
