Hello and welcome!! Finally posting the next edition of our Inspiration Station challenge! And we have brand new logo!! Hurrah!!
It was my turn to issue the challenge, and I’ve come up with another moodboard. And I must say, I went through hundreds of images in Pinterest before I came up with this!
Since I have been making cards for all the previous challenges, I thought of making some mixed media work this time. Came up with a pen stand – which I am actually going to use to hold my hair combs. 🙂
I used tissue for the inside and the outside, a cloth-lined envelope which I adhered inside out, then added black gesso, added the molds, then painted it with acrylic paints. Finally added the orange-red paint with Prima waxes, for a sort of a patina look.
The air dry clay I was using was almost dry, and so, it wasn’t easy to make the shapes. They were breaking even as I was taking them out of the mould! I, however, managed to keep the pieces together and paste them properly. It wouldn’t make much of a difference once everything was done! 🙂
But I must admit, it has been a pain to get the color right in the images. Somehow all the photos were showing a bright blue, whereas they are a mix of blue, peacock color and black. Even the highlights are a mix of copper, gold and red. It doesn’t look right even after I modified the images using Gimp! Sigh! My photography is a failure!!
But checkout what my sister has created! I think she has done more justice to the board than I. She has created a beautiful sheet of art! Totally love it!
If you would like, feel free to make something with this moodboard, and leave a link in the comments below – I’ll make sure to stop by and leave a comment!
