The appeal of mixed media for me is the ability to transform mismatched and unrelated objects and make them part of a cohesive art piece. :)
Nuts and washers from old lighting, old telephone cable, button, lace, pearls and fibers all get a new lease of life with gesso and paint....[Can you spot them? *winks*]
I added even more texture and interest with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Liquitex resin sand medium [the rhombus shapes].
The pops of colour were pulled from a photo of The Gangster Gang [aka niece + nephews]. :)
The objects were adhered with Liquitex Matte Gel and the paints were Daler-Rowney acrylics.
I had these lovely ladies join me for a workshop on Sunday. Love what they made!
