Yesterday was the day I decided to overcome my fear and finally use all the mixed media stuff I've been collecting for a while. I used as an inspiration >>this video from Vicky Papaioannou<< She is a great artist and her videos are great. I've been watching them for a while and she makes mixed media looks super easy and fun. Thanks Vicky for all the inspiration you share with us!!
Here are a few details:
The houses are from a Claudine Hellmuth set.
The letters were cut in foamy using a Paper Trey Ink die.
I made the cloud stencil with chipboard and a Paper Trey Ink die.
The heart was cut in foamy using a Spellbinder die. The foam was originally black and I altered it using gesso and Faber Castell Gelattos.
The sentiment is in Spanish and means "Home is where the heart is".
And here is the complete project:
For the canvas I used Gesso, Faber Castell Gelattos and Essential PITT Artist Pens, Liquitex Matte Gel and White modeling paste, Tim Holtz tissue paper with music sheet design, acrilic paint in sky blue, a white and a black gel pen and different background stamps I have in my stash.
I had so much fun making this project. And really loved the results. I have a few ideas in my head that I need to write down since I will not be able to play with mixed media for a while. I have a few projects I need to complete before I can play with paints and get all dirty again.
Hope you have a great afternoon and thanks for the visit!!!
