1. Two crosses:
I made these as possible decorations for a new church that I am helping to "plant." I had a lot of fun mixing random junk pieces and bought items (like Finnabair's Mechanicals and Vintage Vanity, etc).
I used Luminarte Silks to color them.
The first one is a small 6x8 (?) canvas:
2. Next, I wanted to use the Finnabair style for a canvas with one of my photos. I don't love the result, but I guess it turned out ok. That's me at the Colosseum in Rome.
3. The other day, I ran across this site: Scrapbook Diaries. I absolutely love the mixed media-style layouts that are featured there, and I am definitely planning on buying a kit at some point. In the meantime, I checked out the Live with Prima section, and this canvas stood out to me: Treasure Canvas with Kasia Krzyminska.
I have a new blog and artist to inspire me now! I have already pinned a lot of Kasia's art journal pages, but never spent a long time perusing her blog until this week. She is one of those artists where every single project of hers, I just LOVE and it makes me want to start creating my own versions right away.
I love her work so much that I signed up for this workshop: Pop and Colours (where she is one of the featured designers). I am excited for it to start next week!
So, I watched the canvas video through once, and then again while creating my own version. Here's my take on it:
Challenge #9 at A Mixed Media Color Challenge.
Whew, I guess that is it for now! Thanks for stopping by.
