I am super excited today, as this is my Guest Designer mixed media project for Try It On Tuesday Blog.
All their Challenges are an "anything goes" medium. As long as you stay within the challenge theme you can make a card, altered project, ATC, scrapbook page, tag or anything your heart desires.
My art journal was chosen among top5 in last month challenge. And when Avril asked me if I can do GD post for this fun challenge theme- 'They who have wings', I was very happy.
And here is my mixed media canvas with- Bird and Butterflies
Here are some of the close up views,
To start this, I adhered design paper from Sunrise sunset collection. As I wanted to play with lot of color mediums, but did not want to lose beautiful design/colors on the paper, I applied coat of Prima clear Gesso for the whole surface.
I've used Crafters Workshop Art is ..stencil and texture paste in the background. When it dried, I applied Distress paints in yellows and orange, spritzed water and let the colors move around, this is my favourite technique. I've also used Gelatos and Lindy's inks to create color variations.
Beautiful bird image is from Magenta stamp. I colored him with distress inks. For more interest and texture layers, I attached micro beads with Prima 3d Matte Gel.
I had a fun time creating this sunny mixed media creation.
Don't forget to hop over Try It On Tuesday and you will find amazing projects by Design Team.
