Hey there artsy friends Rita Barakat here on day 2 of the Xyron/ Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog collaboration! Both blogs have coordinated this week to bring you fabulous projects and prizes!
Who doesn't love winning a prize? All you have to do is comment to be eligible to win! Well, on with the festivities! I made a mixed media collage canvas! This is the first of four canvas' I am making for a mixed media seasons series. This piece is called Fall. I drew and painted all my pieces; I also used watercolor paper and adhered it on the canvas, let's take a look...
First I took my canvas and spread Pearl Texture Luxe and Whipped Spackle with a spatula. I love that one is completely matte while the other has that pearlescent shimmer to it; using them together gives a fun contrast! After the canvas was dry I drew some lines with Gelatos® colors in Mango & Banana.
I drew and painted my girl with lots of Gelatos Colors and PITT artist pens. I used the Xyron Mega Runner to adhere it to the painted canvas.
I decided it needed a little something so I drew and cut out some flowers to decorate. (See first pic) The Xyron sticker maker really came in handy for this! After I added them I put little white dots with the tip of a sharp pencil. I have these yellows and oranges for Fall, I am using blue and white for Winter what colors should I use for Summer and spring?
Each day this week, we’ll post a new project on our blogs. Make sure you hop to both blogs and the Facebook page for more chances to win and more inspiration!
