Welcome to the Week 8 Challenge. This week’s theme is “Mixed Media It”.
The beauty of creating a Mixed Media piece of art is that there are no solid rules. Anything you choose can be added to your work. So the guidelines for this week’s challenge will be:
Create a mini album – you must create a mini album with at least 3 different materials as the base pages. Two of your pages will need to be created out of fabric. (I have used canvas/ heavy weight calico, cardstock, corrugated card) - your acetate embellishment page (described below) is not counted as one of these pages.
All pages need to combine paint, ink and collage. The collage style can include anything you want – ribbon, photos, journaling, other embellishments, but every page must include at least one button and stitching (either hand or machine).
Your embellishment for this artwork is to create at least one acetate page to go into your album – this page is to be a different shape to your album shape. This page will need to have patterned paper, stitching and a word or journaling.
Here is my example for you to have a peek at....
This page was created with canvas fabric. I have also used watercolor paints, tim holtz inks, buttons, ribbons, random stitching, rub ons, lace & ribbons and a transparency over the photograph.
The page on the right has been created using acetate.
I have created this next page using cardstock and texture paste, this was to give the page dimension.
The page on the left is cardstock and the page on the right was created with canvas.
The page on the left was created out of corrugated card. the page on the right is another acetate page.
The page on the left has been created out of acetate to which i have added fabric. the page on the right is another canvas page.
My final page was created out of cardstock with a stamped transparency and fabric added.
Good luck with your creations. I hope that you enjoy this challenge
