This is a little bit of this and a little bit of that thrown in with a couple of images and Voila.... Mixed media art. The first think I did for this was to use the Crafters Workshop Gears stencil and laid it on a burlap canvas. I used a magenta acrylic paint and painted the canvas. I then picked out the Steampunk Dragonfly
and Nancy's Mech Seahorse.
I colored these with Copic markers, cut them out, and then when done I used Crystal Lacquer to make them shiny and hard.
Copic Colors - BG70, 72, 75, 78, Y11, 23, 26, 28, C1, 3, 5, B60.
This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. To be honest sometimes mixed media scares me because I always think of it as off balance, and crazy. I love how it ends up looking, but that is really not my crafting style (my personality maybe, but not my OCD style). So letting go and mixing things up is a challenge. But, I really like how this turned out, and basically - if I can do mixed media - anyone can!!!!
I hope you all have a great and productive weekend, and we will see you again soon!!!!
