Mixed Media Workshop

This is my artwork from a class at the weekend at Pink Tulip (my local craft shop) with Fran Westmoreland. We used lots of Prima product to create a layered mixed media canvas.

Below is Fran's class and a pic of Fran with her example I pinched from Pink Tulip. As you can see I didn't completely follow the instructions as per (!) and mine ended up pretty different. Her colours were really punchy - I muted mine down to create something closer to my own style. I also added stamping (of course!) - on the background and as my focal (that fabby peeling paint stamp is by Cherry Pie; the eye and words are of course Tim stamps) . And I wanted my piece offset rather than central so I moved the centre of the 'splat'.

Quite pleased with my version and had a lovely day with my dearest friend Paula which was the main point of going!

Promise to be back soon with some more work - been sooooooooo busy lately!

  1. I like your version. Softer and makes the meaning have significanceYours matches the tone of the sentiment. Not saying the other one is bad, it is gorgeous too but in a different way

  2. That is absolutely gorgeous! I wish that shop was a little closer to me. Love both of them! So very lush and I would love to learn how to create one like that, TFS Karen x
