Artist collaboration mixed media canvas


Mixed-media-canvas-for-artists-collaboration

60 artists from all over the world played with the same set of found objects to produce some really cool art in huge artist collaboration called Starting From The Same Place, organized by the amazing Tina Walker. Here is my piece - a 12x12 mixed media canvas. :)



The instructions were to use a little of each supply item that was sent and of course, add on whatever items we wanted to make the piece our own. As a challenge to myself, I did not add any of my own embellishments to the mix. [Yay...go me! *winks*]


I chose to use every single item I was given by collaging everything to a 12x12 canvas...tearing and breaking up bits to create texture on my canvas. We were given a Stencil Girl stencil to use so I applied some Golden fiber paste with it to help unify the piece. Then I went over the collaged canvas with some clear gesso to maintain the original colours of the items.


I used some ink sprays in the hues of the original items and highlighted the raised areas with white gesso. I repeated the process until I got the effect that I wanted.


Of course, since I'm currently obsessed with drawing the eye, I had to paint one with inks. :) It was a little challenging paint on bumpy areas but the folds of the fabric that I painted on kind of helped create a little dimensional effect.


The end piece really combines my love of found objects with my current foray into drawing and painting. :)


The centre of the graphic shows the supplies we were given. Big thanks to sponsors Stencil Girl, Beacons Adhesives and Amazing Casting Products. If you have time, take a look at all the different interpretations of the same supplies by different artists [links below].
