art journaling techniques - using modeling paste

As many of my friends know, I love to participate in challenges.  When I saw that the Art Journaling Ning was starting up a new monthly challenge, I knew I wanted to participate.  Kathi mentioned the use of modeling clay, and I had just bought some a few weeks ago.  So I decided to show you what I did with it.



I started out with gesso on a lined sheet of paper in my composition book.  Usually I put color down next but I decided to place my large Mylar flowered stencil on the white page.  I taped off the stencil so only one flower was available at a time and smeared some Liquidex Modeling Paste over it, using a credit card.   Very easy to find in craft stores.


Then I painted over the page with watercolor, applied some circles with punchilla on the sides and stamped a few dragonflies.  This was the first time I ever used modeling paste, so I will play some more with it later.  I might take a photo of a city scene and use the paste for the exterior of buildings. Think that would be cool!


Here's a view of the entire page.

Wow! I have never worked with modeling paste. What unexpected and lovely results! What is punchilla, though?
