Mixed Media Monday

This is the first time entry for me here although I look every week at the blog. It is the time you see, only yesterday it was last Christmas!!

I was inspired by the theme and made the time to do a bit of tactile (as opposed to digital) art.

The background is from The Graphics Fairy (thank you), there are some great images here to enjoy. I printed off the image and duplicated two more smaller ones at the bottom - spookily it looks as if there is someone looking up, and aged the edges with walnut stain Distress Inks.

I coloured the main eye image iris with stream Adirondack Ink and clear embossed over it. Not sure it shows up too well on this scan. The Gothic arch windows was a picture on the net from who knows where, who knows when now - sorry. I printed it out and cut out the insides of the frame using a craft knife. I inked the frame with scattered straw Distress Inks and printed off the words and coloured with lettuce and cranberry Adirondack Inks - the inside of the O in the word window was coloured with stream Acrylic by Ranger.

  3. Lovely creation! You have so many interesting elements and I really Love that quote. Karen at Graphics Fairy has so many wonderful images doesn't she! I know nothing about digital collage, but I really appreciate everything that went into this tactile piece :)

  4. I love this as its very surreal and dali-esque and what a great link to the graphics fairy site..thanks very much for your great comments on my recent paintings.
