Creative Heart Monday - Nighttime Cityscape

I have to be honest.....this is not the, original, project for this week.  I, actually, started a painting using my R&F Oil Paint Sticks.....but, it was taking way too long.  So, I'm putting that one off until next Monday.  I decided to do something a little more familiar to me.....playing with my Gel Press print scraps.  I pulled out a few of my darker prints, made one new one, and.....

Here we go........

Usually, my Gel Press prints are very colorful, but I wanted something a little different this time.  I think that it worked out alright.

List of Supplies

8" X 10" Canvas
Black Liquitex Gesso
Americana Paint - Titanium White, Ultra Blue Deep
DecoArt Media - Cerulean Blue
DecoArt Media Interference Paint - Blue
Scrap Gel Press Prints
Black Charcoal Pencil
White Sakura Gellyroll Pen
Decou-Page Matte Medium

Have a great Monday and a wonderful week.

Oops....I almost forgot....A few days ago, I made a quick video on How to make Collage/Tissue Paper.  I'm going to try to put out weekly (or bi-weekly) videos on little tips and techniques.  If anyone has a cute name for my "tip" videos, let me know.  Also, if anyone can think of a technique that they would like to see, let me know.  I'm not an expert on anything, but I will try just about everything.  I realize that there are tons of videos on YouTube, covering anything that you can think of, but if you ever think of something that you would be interested in seeing.....I'm all ears!!




  1. I watch your Monday videos every week and love each and every one. Especially like today's because I love cities, buildings, the moon. I cannot wait to give it a try. Thank you. Sue
