Finding My Way...

I feel as though I've went through a dark tunnel in last few days and I'm glad to remember Peace within again. Finally I've put some closure on a situation that's been draining tremendous amounts of my emotional energy and I did not realize the extent of its heavy toll on me until I decided to let go and move on. The serenity of relief and inner peace has been quiet palpable and yet energizing. Throughout the turmoil I did engage my creativity, though in a rather haphazard I look forward to enter back into the flow of life and creation....

Hand-made paper on wood panel that will be glued to the surface with Golden Soft Gel Semi-Gloss.

A pour of Golden Self-Leveling gel will protect the sensitive paper from any future damage and will create a glossy texture.

I applied, the one and only, Crackle Paste to the surface creating a border-effect. For XXX-Large cracks use heavy volume of paste.

I mixed Hard Molding Paste with Golden Heavy Body Acrylics Quinacridone Burnt Orange and Interference Oxide Red, and spreaded thick layer of this mixture across.

Using a color shapers of various sizes I played with ebbs, flows, and patterns my hand was making.... great fun!

I have begun to paint crackled edges with Liquid Sap Green, and that's it for now....


  1. I'm glad you have managed to find closure, Tatiana. I'm sure your spirit will feel much lighter. Thanks for sharing the start of your latest project.

  2. Hi Tatiana,
    Hope you attain peace and increased creative energy to focus on your images. I am always rather overwhelmed by all the Golden Products (but they seem so fun! my inner child wants to play). Can't wait to see how this latest creation plays out. Love the heart designs and I'm feeling the loving energy letting loose from the image! Revel in it.
