This is a 5x7 mixed media collage. The photos are just camera phone pics but I wanted to share and have no patience. It's a canvas board base with papers, ink, watercolor, acrylics, paper tape, joint compound...maybe more? I forget.
When I varnished it, the blue ink smeared all over, so it looks different now to what it did when I thought it was finished. Ha.
The two goddesses are temporary tattoos. I like how the transfer left them a little rough around the edges. And middle.
The heart is my favorite. Just a printed out heart with watercolors and ink, then added Glossy Accents to make it glisten and add dimension. The join compound stencil is called pomegranate so I added a dot or two of Glossy Accents to random "seeds" to give them a bit of pop also.
The whole thing turned out a bit darker than I wanted but if I scan it in I may be able to lighten the prints, at least.
I haven't been around for a couple of months and this is the first thing I've finished since...er...October? Anyway, this is a mixed media collage piece. I got to try out some fun new-to-me techniques. I used canvas board as a base and layed with paper, paints, inks, joint compound, watercolors, lace, and some little water drop looking embellishments. The heart is wood that I papered and painted. I made gears using the Tim Holtz gears dye for the Sizzix and used shrinky dink plastic. I inked them then I covered them (badly) with Glossy Accents. I also got to use clear embossing powder for the first time. Whee!
I made this little shadow box from one of those paper mache boxes from Michael's. Lots of trial and error, putting leaves all over everything. I thought about adding some moss too, but it seems like I may have missed the boat. Next time!
Scrapbooking papers, glitter glue, fake leaves, and a little plastic dino doing a dance move.
My partner, who is awesome, picked up a Martha Stewart silicon mold to try with my Mod Melts - works like a charm! The mold had this adorable mushroom in it so I made it (of course) into a magnet. The entire thing is just over an inch tall.
And here are all of the magnets I've made in the last few days. All of them are hand cast (except for the molar), hand painted, and so cute.
I'm having fun making some little chipboard pieces and using cardstock, decorative papers, paint, washi tape, glitter (of course), and mod melts to make...stuff. I made this pendant and some magnets. I almost wrecked the pendant this morning when I punched the hole for the jump ring. Lesson learned: chipboard is not metal. Noted.
And these are magnets; not the best lighting but you get the idea. I used magnet strips on the back with some glitter glue for fanciness.
