Altered Palette

For de Stempelwinkel challenge  and for Dare to create part 3, I made this altered palette inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci. I am not really a painter so I
used the Big Leonardo Human stamp to make my "any artist inspired painting"  I hope painting backgrounds count as painting too :-)

See for more info bout the Dare to Create challenge here

Challenge theme  for de stempelwinkel is men, and this obviously is one LOL

Deco Art products used: Americana Acrylic Gesso, Weathered Wood Crackle medium, Americana Acrylics in Bahama Blue and Lamp Black, Dazzling metallics in Venetian Gold, Media Fluids in Burnt Sienna and Paynes Grey. metallic Lustres in Iced Expresso Copper Kettle and Gold Rush

I will enter this in the following challenges


  1. This is lovely Monique.... never seen a 1 Euro coin... and a great way to use up my old scabby paint brushes!
    Thank you so much for joining in our MEN challenge at De-stempelwinkel stampers. BDx

  2. Wat een schitterend werkstuk, Monique! Echt kunst! Je zou het naar het blad Just Steampunk moeten sturen, wordt beslist geplaatst! (ze vinden het niet erg als het al op je blog heeft gestaaan)

  3. Monique, this is fabulous! What a gorgeous creation.

  4. Oh my! This is amazing! Love the textures and the actual idea is brilliant! Thank you for sharing it with us at Mixed Media World! Ingrid x

  5. Monique, this has got to be my favorite of all the palettes you have done... I just love how you achieve this "antique" look. This is definitely something that should be showcased in a magazine!
