Art Is Good For You

Are you ready for another beautiful mixed media inspiration?
Do you have a box of treasures at home? Maybe it's time to take a look inside? ;)



I have a box filled with all kinds of trinkets and interesting little objects.
I reach for them from time to time when I create my projects and this time I also found inspiration in my special box.
I didn't do any careful planning. I just had a blank canvas (30x30 cm.) that I covered with a layer of Gesso and some Modeling Paste applied through a stencil.
And then my Muse went away...
I created some other projects in the meantime and decided to come back to my canvas.
I sketched a dreamy profile with a pencil and then went over it with a black pen.
It made me remember how much I love drawing, I promised myself to do it more often.


Are Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays among your favorites, too? I used two shades of blue and I also sprayed some mist that I created mixing blue Mica Powder with water. It gave a nice metallic effect.

And then I reached for my box of treasures...
I chose old paint tubes, old paintbrush and a rusty pen nib. I also took Prima embelishments (metal and resin) and some Mechanicals and painted everything with gesso and sprayed with the same mists I used on my background.


Then it was time for stamping the backround with Finnabair and 3rd Eye stamps.
I glued my embellishments using Magic Glue and Glossy Accents and voila...
...here's me... dreaming about tomorrow...

  8. Incredible. Just love this kind of mixed media art... and yours is just wonderful. The way you positioned the face is just perfect and that little chair made me smile. Every good artist needs a comfy chair as much as they need the paints. At least I do!!!! The colors are so peaceful. It appears that the face in the picture has found contentment and satisfaction in creating art. BEAUTIFUL message and artwork. j.
