This weekend I completed a mixed media canvas for a competition I saw in the mixed media magazine Cloth Paper Scissors. I love this magazine and is one of the only art magazines I’ve found that has a focus on mixed media.
I made another little video here and used a black primer for the background and my favourite Posca Pens to draw the flowers. I love the affect 🙂 I want to make more videos although they do take a lot of time.
I’ve dedicated so much time to my mixed media projects recently that my art journaling got kind of neglected. If only there were more hours in the day! And these didn’t get filled up with chores, work, travelling, sleeping…. Anyway, I’ve started working in my new smaller art journal, which is really cute and also gives a different perspective to creating something on a page.
I have been so productive with my art journal, I think because I’m really excited to be using my new materials! This one looks quite dark, I think because I used so many things on the page, including grunge paste which I scrapped into, then dylusions sprays, acrylic paint, pen, and grunge paper I die cut into the flowers, butterflies and hearts. I am still quite happy the way it came out as I think it is quite interesting and gave me the opportunity to play with my art and enjoy the process much more.
I love the colours of this page (which I scanned in) and I used the grunge paste more sparingly with a stencil to get a different effect. I also made my second video of me making this which you can watch here:
I’d love to hear what you think!
Here is my finished art journal page I did at the weekend. I love the colour sprays which are Dylusions by Ranger. I set myself the project of a little video showing how I made it. Here a link:
Please let me know what you all think! Enjoy!
