Make Multimedia Art!

We hope you've seen the news about some changes in our Design Team.
Today we are starting a new week with a wonderful project by Athanasia who is making her entrance to the Team accompanied by the sound of a beautiful trumpet! :)
(to get to know Athanasia better - visit her blog and read our short interview)

Hello! Today I'm very excited to show you my first project for this great team!
I made a canvas about my two passions: music and mixed media art.

I started with sketching the trumpet: first I made a draft drawing with my pencil to use it as a template. Then, I stamped with several stamps around and on it in order to create the main design, the trumpet.
Finally, I did some doodling with a permanent pen to make some final touches. It was a really fun way to create a design without actually drawing!

I also made some shades with a pencil to create depth and make it more realistic.

When I was happy with the result, I covered the design with a piece of paper and started working with the background of the main composition.
My first step is always to add gesso with a stencil. After that, I made a lot of splashes with many colors of differed media like watercolors and Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
Of course it can't be a mixed media background without stamps, and what would be more perfect for this canvas than a stamp with music score, right? I also used a stamp with flowers, that's all.

Then, I glued all the embellishments, the letters 'ART' and the word 'MAKE' on the trumpet.
As a final touch, I distressed the whole canvas with the 'Vintage Photo' Distress Ink.
