I am still TRYING!! Lucky enough to have met some truly wonderful people out there in the art world who are teaching me about this layer lark in mixed media. Each time I do one it goes horribly wrong, so I have been advised to show each layer as I go along, so we can all see what happens. Everyone else can enjoy watching just how much mess I can make each day.
I started out with my latest toys that I love, they are Derwent Inktense pencils, so you start off simply scribbling about with them - good eh?
Then, just add some water.. yes, just water and they turn into bright ink
Next I added a bit of collage, just a few paper scraps..
Then out with the paint brush and Acrylic paints, and stamps
Finishing off day one once it was all dry with an indian ink pen and nib, adding a bit of doodling...
I think I know were I am heading... just waiting on the postman for the next bit of collage etc, wonder just how badly I can get it to turn out this time LOL. Also working on a birthday card, but think I need stronger card so it can stand up.. Talking of which, today is of course Valentines Day and Also my wedding anniversary, my Mum makes cards in her free time, she is very good. This is what she made for us today, has my favourite things on the front, nice glass of wine or two and my dogs.
Hope everyone is having a lovely day today, I will update what happens next on the orange peril when its done, fingers crossed.
