I thought it was time to get out my paints and mixed media supplies since there are two very special Birthdays coming up.
I've been following Creative Jump Start- a series of videos by various artists to help JumpStart your creativity organized by Nat Kalbach. You might like to join up. It's free, and there's lots of great ideas!
I've learned different ways to use techniques I already knew, but I've also learned lots of new stuff, too! It's fun seeing mixed media projects from a variety of artists. Creative Jump Start runs for the month.
Having been inspired by the daily videos, I thought I'd have some fun playing and making some birthday cards.
This card is going in the mail today
I love the pattern, and wondered how it would look if I used it as a stencil with gesso
blue acrylic and a heart pattern might help......
it's really ugly, hunh?
should I toss it?.......maybe I'll just play and add some more........
once it's dry to the touch, I added some marker to outline the design........
This card is still drying...........but I like it! There's lots and lots of texture from the gesso.........
it may need additional layers of water colours and black once it's completely dry
Hope you enjoyed my play day. I sure did!
May you have some fun doing something you enjoy, today, too.
Thanks for visiting.
