This month, I took the index card art to a different level. I made flat cards for the first two months, and this time around, I didn’t want to do so.
I tried to stick with a bit of a grungy spring theme. Flowers, pinks, blues, yellows, and a few other colors.
At first, I didn’t like how it turned out. I got up, cleaned up, and walked away. I came back to add my finishing touches. Some gold…. I feel all my mixed media projects need gold or something related to it….well not my art journal pages.
I also recorded this in a different way. I decided to get a canvas blanket, roll it out, put my yoga mat under it, and created. This video is gonna be a bit of an odd one. I got up so many times. It’s easier to be at my desk creating versus being 3 feet away and unprepared. 🤣
After 2 weeks of training, I’m off until after Christmas. Today is just my first day in and I’m already on a creative cloud. I decided to pull out a random hand full of box flaps that I cut off the main part of food packaging and create.
I used stencils from P.M. Artist Studio. A pair of Mixed Media Queens I’ve been following for about a year or so. One of my most favorite things they make are gelli printed, stenciled, ATC’s. To me, it’s like a decorated cookie.
With my scraps, stencils, paints, alcohol sprays, texture paste, and gelli plate, I created these babies.
The tiny one at the top is my FAVORITE one. It may be an inch and a half by three quarters of an inch.
I really enjoyed making these and I may get out some more scraps to continue.
