Hi there and Happy November! Time sure flies ~ before we know it, we'll be ringing in 2014! It's time for an all new Mixed Media Color Challenge! Thanks to all who took the time to share their creativity with us and thanks to those who left encouraging comments :)
In celebration of the upcoming holidays, this will be our last challenge of 2013! Rather than the usual color story to play with we are offering you, the artist, the option to play with whatever colors inspire you to create a holiday mixed media project!
I was inspired to create a 3D home decor piece using some of the new products and techniques that Finnabair introduced to me this past summer when I attended one of her classes. This piece has so many layers of gel medium, tissue paper, paints, mists, chipboard embellishments and metal trinkets I lost count!
Once I had the wooden box covered with music note tissue paper, I added texture using the Stargaze stencil. For added interest and design, I randomly stamped the polka dot image from Distressed Background Blocks and the text image from Collage Backgrounds:To create the Christmas tree, I layered various metal trinkets from my stash including several that I have had for about 10 years! (the gingerbread man piece and the believe word plaque). Once I built the tree and had it adhered in place, I painted with various paints, mists, sprays and inks.
Thank you for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Mixed Media Color Challenge site for some fab inspiration from Sue and for complete details on how to join along.
