This is so beautiful and creative! I never ever would have thought to use masking fluid on a place where I already painted. I love this ;U;

No~ I cannot speak French, but I have learned French for 6 years in school because of Canada's education system. Still can only read very little...

Omg You're from Canada? 0_0
I really suspected you being from heaven with your divinely endearing art... :faint:

They teach you french? Why!? Anyways... I think it's funny! I'm trying to imagine a situation outside our province where you'd need french... but I can't X^3

Your style really is unique. You're all self-taught, aren't you, chérie?

How do you do that? The background is dark... mhh.. cant figure out how.

I do a light wash, cover it with patterns via masking fluid, paint over with a dark layer, and peel off the masking fluid to reveal light patterns. I also add patterns with acrylic ink. 8)

Your work usually has a more earthy and flowery feeling to it, but this and your newest submission have such a glowing, sparkling, celestial look. It's so gorgeous ♥ I love the vivid contrast in this one.
