Hi there! I just wanted to share a bunch of mixed media paintings I did over the last week. I watched an art class from Laura Horn and was super inspired to start my own little series of collages. I used hand painted collage papers together with some stamped images. I used acrylic paint for stamping instead of stamping ink. Click on more to see why…
I made a vintage art journal spread with a collage on the background. I worked in the Kunst & Papier watercolor journal. The papers are handmade and also from a design paper pad. The one with the flowers in an old book page I painted myself with watercolors. As a focal image I added one of the Grungy Butterflies stamps. Click on more to watch a quick video.
I made some mixed media altered playing cards with a collage background. I inked some tissue with Brusho powders. After the tissue was dry I used it for this background. You will find a quick video on how I made this when you click more. The leaves are from my Sketchy Leaves stamp set, the mushrooms are from Textured Mushrooms.
I’m sharing the making some grungy mixed media tags today over on my YouTube channel. I had so much fun to create them. To create textured I stamped the background with gesso, that creates a nice effect when you go on top with watercolors. Click on more if you want to see the video and also close-up images of my finished tags.
Inktober Day 30 and 31
I’m sharing a new process video to inspire you over on my YouTube channel today. I am creating a pair of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) using the embossing resist technique together with Distress Inks for the background. I am decorating the cards with some stamped collage fodder. I’m making some autumn leaves using our „I Love Leaves“ and „Twiggy Leaves“ stamp sets together with water-soluble pencils. This creates a super lovely watercolor effect.
Inktober Day 29 – abstract mixed media play with watercolors, acrylic inks, a Derwent Inktense pencil and collage fodder made with some of my stamps
Inktober Day 27 and 28
In today’s video I am creating an abstract mixed media spread in my art journal. I so enjoy playing with different materials, I feel like a happy child when I do this. For me it’s absolutely the best thing about art!
