That was my challenge. It’s the second week’s lesson of the class I’m taking at Big Picture called “Get Artsy Mixed-Media Class with Mou Saha”.
We are supposed to be on week 4 now but I am just finishing my page for week 2.
It started with mists on a sheet of watercolor paper. It came out too heavy but because I had a coat of gesso I was able to apply another coat and all the ink softened and moved into a much prettier and softer color. The I did more spraying, especially lightly, and made it run. Overdone. But, hey, trial time. I know I wanted to use a photo from the beach. You can barely see the word “wave” along the left, it didn’t come out like I had envisioned. So, what could I write? Well, a nice quote or poem perhaps? Couldn’t find one that worked for me so thoughts started popping out and I wrote my own poem. I embellished with stamps, cuts from a Cricut cartridge, jewels and flowers.
There is a lot to learn about working with various mediums and how to apply them to my scrapbooking world – a lot to learn!
