Wake up and be Awesome

Hi everyone,

I have a mixed media board to share with you today, I went to a class yesterday and we made mixed media boards using DecoArt Media Paints, gesso, matte medium, stamps, etc and had a lot of fun, I also learned how to understand and use the colour wheel, which was great, as I’m not that great at the old mixed media thing πŸ™‚

Here is the board I made, I like how it turned out

wake-up-and-be-awesome-1

We stamped the girl image onto mulberry paper and painted her before fixing her down to the board with matte medium

Once everything was stuck down I added some highlights with a signo uniball white pen and a black pen to touch up the bits I had missed on the “wake up and be awesome”

I had loads of fun down at Helen’s and if you ever get the chance you should pop in and visit πŸ™‚
