Hello and welcome to my blog..."kitchen sink creations!" This is a place where I hope to fill with scrapbook pages, mixed media art, pinterest projects, art journalling and other crafty goodness. I'm very new to both blogging and art in general so this is pretty much my learning process, out in the open, both scary and exciting! I hope I can scrounge up a few followers and would love any comments.
Here are a few of my latest projects:
Christy Tomlinson so I had learned some basics. My mom collects those angels without faces so I thought she may appreciate these faceless girls. First I collaged some Tim Holtz tissue paper and patterned paper onto the canvas. Then I used acrylic paint, stamps, rub ons, modelling paste and I collaged book paper heart for the background. Then I added the girl I had cut out of book paper and patterned paper, and painted her skin and hair. I finished with a flower and some purple metallic gelato around the edge. She was a lot of fun to make, I was pretty happy with the result, for it being my first attempt at a girl on canvas.
We had to come up with 5 words that we would like people to use to describe us. She records a live show almost every Monday and has fun "dares" that anyone can participate in every month, with of course, fab prizes. I didn't win but that's ok...
http://luvleescrappin.blogspot.com/ who is awesome and has many inspiring videos on Youtube, you must check her out if you haven't already! Each little element in my collage has meaning and while I'm not crazy with the way the colors came out, I still like it.
Thanks if you are still reading, I have one more thing to share that was also really fun to make.
