I haven’t posted any mixed media stuff in a while, mostly because I was in sort of a creative slump, totally underwhelmed by all of my efforts to kickstart a new project. I suppose you could call it “just going through the motions”. But, I kept on creating and you know what? It seems I got my mojo back! I actually did the “fake it til you make it” thing and got my “creative feet” back under me. If you’re a friend of Jimmy or a friend of Bill, you’re probably familiar with this process and have used it a few times yourself.
WEEK 40 THE DOCUMENTED LIFE
This week’s prompt was to use three colors you don’t normally use. I chose orange, yellow and brown and when I started laying down the first layer, I thought it was the ugliest thing ever. But I kept on working with it, adding some three dimensional doodads and some stickers that continued the color scheme. Then, suddenly, my project didn’t seem so ugly to me anymore. In fact, I kinda liked it, I kinda liked it a lot!
Acrylic paint, spray inks, stencils, stickers, a bit of washi tape, hand drawn flowers that I colored with gel pens and cut out, homemade stickers and a doodled circle fold out
Sorry you have to stand on your head to see them. 😕
Here’s a look at a project I’m doing on my own. It’s not quite finished. I think it needs doodads.
