Freeze frame fun
doing your own thing:
What a busy weekend with the kids first outdoor game and meal together at Mamo Burger and now I have a kid home sick and a dog with conjunctivitis. Vets tomorrow for her annual.
This mixed media is a small 5 x 7 using Liquitex Ceramic Stucco for the textured parts.
More texture coming soon! Try it.
Happy creating 🎨
Kudos to experienced collagers, getting the tones right between objects is really hard. If it’s too busy you can’t tell where the wool ends and the grass starts.
I promise next time to keep the colors separate and use paper throughout. For now I added paint for the background and gave the wool a black edge. (A before shot would have been a good idea to show wouldn’t it. Oh well.)
Try this with any subject. Happy creating! 🎨[Top]
After this challenge, I’ll slow down on stamping absolutely everything ;).
(Can you tell I read a lot of Teresa’s cartoons. I was trying to write a poem but this appeared.)
The tree bark, sky and sheep wool is from an eraser stamp. I carved every side. The green squares are from a small ink pad from my old scrapbooking supplies.
It’s a new year
Time for some new ideas!
As if by magic my browsing stumbled across a most magnificent mixed media artist this morning.
She just happens to be starting an art marks challenge today.
It sounds fun, easy and creative. Anyone fancy that? Check out her website it is full of creative goodies.
Maybe this year I will blog about challenges I find or even make up a challenge myself.
For example stamping using kids’ stamps might be a fun one.
I like the idea of setting a timer. The urgency might make the pictures a bit crazy. 😝
I started this mixed media monkey at myvfriend’s house and then I got some fun craft supplies:
And this is how silly it got:
I expected to use paint and maybe sell it as a print in Society6 but this one is just for the outside of the box school, lesson 1 lol.
Here’s another monkey prompt:
Have a monkeying around kind of day![Top]
