Mixed Media Canvas

Good Morning,

This is my weekend at the moment so I thought I would take the opportunity to do a little I mean post :)

Last year I took a little bit of time out to do a class at the Scrap Cottage (you can do online orders from this little shop of yumminess for those of you not lucky enough to live in Toowoomba) because sometimes you just need a little boost to get the mojo flowing. 

Face it, everyone loves mixed media cause its a good opportunity to get messy and dirty and well colourful......for those who have never delved into mixed media a small explanation on what its all about........

Mixed media tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. For example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work. When creating a painted or photographed work using mixed media it is important to choose the layers carefully and allow enough drying time between the layers to ensure the final work will have structural integrity. 

If you haven't tried it you should cause it's a great way to use up excess supplies etc, this is what I created on the day

Little Ole Me

Just adding my own individual touch

Some side goodness
 After the class a while later I got inspired again and decided to do one at home myself of the fam bam.

Manar Park

I used all sorts of elements that I had in my stash - onion bag, chipboard, flowers etc and even the Fox symbol off an old pair of hubby's riding pants - nothing is junk or unusable, just fun

I'd love to see some of the mixed media you have created (or will create) in your comments and i'd love you to leave me a bit of love so I know you have visited.

Happy Hump Day..
