Mixed Media Monday

Hi Friends! Its the start of another beautiful week, I hope you all had a great weekend! 
 I plan to keep Mondays here on my blog for my Mixed Media work...

 Here I have a page from my Art Journal made using different craft mediums, which is the definition of Mixed Media; using multiple mediums on the work...

 This page was made using DecoArt paints, Distress inks, Staz-On and a bit of Colour Shine spray...

I also used the new Script Silhouette Stencil by The Crafters Workshop...

To start, I painted my background with blue and green splotches, letting it mix and cloud the page, so it wasn't just stark as one flat matte colour.
 When it was dried, I stamped around the page with different shades of Distress Ink, and multiple background stamps, such as spots,  crackle... and then in black the script.

I placed my stencil down, and went over it with a sponge with some yellow and green paint mixed, to make this nice golden green, to highlight the silhouette head and the script therein from the stencil. 

When that was dried, I went aruond the edges with black and white charcoal pencils, and blended them in, just to give it a more defined edge, and a bit of shading.

The words are stamps from Heidi Swapp, and some letter stickers.

I finished my page by dripping and splattering a bit of Bronze colour shine spray about, 
and going around the edge with a white gel pen.

I had a lot of fun making this page, and I am quite happy with the result...


I hope you liked seeing it too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I can see you're really enjoying your artwork Annmaree, this piece is really inspirational and I particularly like the fresh greens - I'm just a tad envious that you're heading into spring what we have winter ahead. That said I do love wonderful colours of autumn.

Hope you have a good Monday,
