Mixed Media Monthly Challenge; Time Flies & Class Work

Hello friends.  Between the fabulous Creative Jump Start and the amazing Wanderlust 2016 courses I’m taking I’ve been having a great time playing with paint and ink.  Today I made an several projects.

My first is an entry for the Mixed Media Challenge for Time Flies.

My page began with Dylusion’s Paints in Lemon Zest, Fresh Lime, and Vibrant Turquoise applied with the blending tool.  I added some Tim Holtz Stencils, a few Close to My Heart Stamps, and marks with a cap and a credit card. It’s a really basic page but just trying out some of the techniques I’m learning.

My next project was inspired by Andrea Gomoll from the Creative Jumpstart Course on Frida Kahlo.  It was done with watercolors. Frida painted a lot of vibrant colors and self portraits and the flowers are supposed to mimic a hat.

My next project is a cover page for the beginning of a journal as taught in Wanderlust 2016.  This is an entire year of classes taught by multiple teachers and I’m already have a blast.  I didn’t have the tools that were used in class so I’m not as happy with it as I thought, but again, I’m learning so hopefully will get better.  I was excited to learn more about collage, balance, and placement.
