Friends In Art

Laughing, chatting, making exciting creative plans, and making HUGE mess on the tables in public places.
Yes, that's us. :)
Whenever we get the chance, our Creative Girls try to meet in person and every time such meetings are followed with some inspiring artworks. Welcome to our Mixed Media World. ;)



Hello, Dears!
Today, I'd like to show you a layout about one special meeting. Our Polish part of Mixed Media Place Design Team meets from time to time and we always have so much fun. We laugh, gossip and even some of us (like me!) make art journal spreads during such meetings. Oh, how I love hanging out with my art friends.



I started my layout with priming my background page with gel medium.  It protected my page from water - I was planning to use a lot of water-based mediums and I didn't want my paper to get destroyed.
Next, I put a thin layer of clear gesso that gave a matte, rough coat which I personally prefer.
After it dried, I've used Kasia's stencil and molding paste to create some texture.


Next, I glued different sorts of materials on my page - cardboard, scrapbooking papers, paper tape, lace etc. I decided to arrange them in a messy way.  To emphasize the messy nature, I splashed my layout with diluted black ink and Twinkling H2O. At the end, I glued a photo taken during one of our DT art dates and highlighted it with a frame painted with Silks.


And what about you? Do you like hanging out with your art friends? Do you make any artworks about these special moments?
