The appeal of mixed media...


Inspired-by-pop-art-mixed-media-canvas-by-Yvonne-Yam-for-The-Crafter's-Workshop7

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!

This is one of my favorite 'Yvonne creations'. I love the colors and textures created by the objects. When my boys were young we spent many hours pouring over a series of books where you had to find objects within the collage photos. Your piece reminds me of those good times. Someday you should make a book featuring your pieces so parents could play the game with their children...more fun and interactive than a game app.
