Creative Artiste Challenge #67 ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

 Hello Creative Friends 

our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes* 

For my December DT creation i'm sharing a mixed media card.

Here's how it all came to be.. 

Using the Rustic Lantern Bigz die from Tim Holtz 
I cut out the image from calico covered mount board.

Liner pen and a tickle of texture paste adds 
depth and dimension to the rustic lantern's frame. 

Painted with silver and black ink the inner globe is 
blended with vintage distress ink heat embossed using 
clear embossing powder to simulate it's shielding glass. 

A fashioned wire handle is attached to the frame

Bigz Tattered Poinsettia's are die cut and painted, teasing the leaves 
before gluing together adding those final dimensional central flowers.

A mini replica of an original once belonging to my late 
Father in Law, it helped guide his way down the mines as a boy. 

Created for my Mother in Law as a Christmas card 
I hope it shines a brighter light as 2021 approaches..

I look forward to seeing your 

Stay safe everyone 
Creative wishes

AJJ ~ The meaning of ... Art

 Hello everyone, 

As Decembers Guest Host @ Art Journal Journey 
i'm sharing my second journal spread 

I adore every aspect of art it allows me to explore, experiment and express. 
Nothing compares to the feeling of bringing a blank page to life with colour.. 

Collage and texture paste through stencils helps breaks up this surface 
where alcohol inks are dripped, sprayed and teased around the page. 

The stamped and painted brushes represent a small selection of tools 
I use to help me discover, demonstrate and make visual noise on a page. 

and not forgetting those paint tubes like little houses 
that help keep our precious paints all safe and sound.. 

Art it's within me.. like my beating HEART.. 

Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx
