Back in my studio after a week in Spain..

Im back home after a wonderful week in Calpe, Spain.
Went there with my husband to get some sun and a good rest after the Icelandic winter.

I did a little painting before I left, taking a new class from Christina Romeo, a very interesting one and different from the classes I have been taking.

This is just the beginning, waiting for the next lesson.

You have to visit my blog again to see how it will look when finished.

And now Im back to my studio painting and painting for a exhibition 
Im going to participate in this winter, cant tell you more now.

Have a wonderful day

Another Mixed Media Painting from Iceland

That is my second blog for Rubber Dance Stamp

Hello again. Sigga Dís from Iceland here, and this is my second 
Guest Designer project for Rubber Dance.

This time I made a different painting. 
Using soft colours and a little collage wings. 

I started using two blue/turquoise and one 
pink paint on a 300 gr. cold pressed 
watercolour paper from Daler Rowney.

Then I did some stamping, and I love these 
stamps from Rubber Dance.

Some details, don't you just love these stamps?

I left a little blank space where I drew a face, 
I love to draw faces.

A bit of white colour here and there.

Black outlining with paint.

Coloured her hair and dress.

Changed the colour of her dress:

After using my brayer adding some 
white colour here and there I wanted 
to add wings to my girl.

Had a little problem deciding where to 
add the wings. 
Used a black Posca pen around her eyes, 
nose and mouth.

Before I feel like finished I had to add a 
little text to my girl. 

It says.. 

Your wings already exist, all you have to do is fly...

Love this text...

Supplies I used:
Daler Rowney 300 gr. cold pressed watercolour paper
Golden fluid acrylic paint
Martha Steward paint
Posca pen
Collage butterfly wings I found on the internet
Some brushes
Golden gel medium for the wings

Here you can find me:

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a great day
