My name is Tracy Scott and when not at the day job as a Finance Officer in East London I love nothing more that to relax with a glass of the red stuff and create wonderful brightly coloured art !!! A self confessed colour-holic, I love to experiment with new mediums and colour combos, the brighter the better... no Browns and beiges for this girl I'm afraid !!! I've been fortunate enough to be able to start teaching mixed media and art journalling in the last 18 months in my spare time and love every single minute of it, it's incredibly satisfying to inspire others to create and reach for their creative dreams.

I was so excited receive my order from Mixed Media Place, my new Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints, Prima Watercolours, stamps and various other goodies had arrived and I just couldn't wait to get started !!

I knew I wanted to create a mixed media piece full of colour and texture and just knew that it had to have some of Finnabairs fabulous butterfly stamps.  9x11 canvas board was the perfect substrate. 

For this piece I used a mix of the stunning Prima Watercolours and Art Alchemy Paints for my background over a base of texture created with modelling paste through my favourite bubble stencil and small pieces of torn resist canvas. 

Various sized butterflies were stamped onto 300 gram card with black archival ink and I coloured with a mix of the Art Alchemy paints and also added some shading with my Prima Watersoluble Oil Pastels, the pastels are super creamy and the rich colours compliment the paints perfectly. 

Prima's fabulous Art Stones and Mini Art Stones as well as Gold Glass Glitter were used around the canvas board to add some more texture and interest and of course I had to add some fine glitter to my butterflies and around the canvas. 

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this project. Sometimes using new products and mediums can be hard work but the Prima paints were amazing, the colours stunning and the metallic finish give a truly luxurious finish. 

Mmmmm now what to create next !!!!!!
