The first theme was 'Wilderness'
I wanted to try to create a sort of garden or forest that was growing wild.
First, I coloured an atc using various colours of green distress inks.
Next, I set about stamping various leaves and branches in Archival ink. I also stamped a bird in the bottom right corner.
To finish I inked around the edges using walnut stain ink.
The second theme for January was 'Mixed Media'.
Here I coloured an atc in distress ink and sprinkled water to create a mottled effect.
I added texture paste to the atc to give an added dimension and extra media.
I stamped an image onto canvas and coloured it in using paints. I added glossy accents to the heart to make it pop.
To finish I added a metal heart.
So, for the mixed media theme I used:
That's certainly a mix of mediums to me!!
Thanks for looking.....
