I saw this new challenge and decided I would participate. Mixed media is still outside my comfort zone but I told myself it was just "playtime" and to have fun.
Here is a link to the challenge and here's the photo we were to use for inspiration.
And here is my art journal page:
I laid down gesso to begin with and then laid down some horizontal lines to mimic the wood background in the photo. Oddly enough I don't recall what I used for the green -- a spray or ink obviously. The circles were made with gelatos. The globe was cut from a patterned paper scrap. I punched the tiny leaves and flowers, added a couple premade flowers, and finally added a Disney-related quote that also has resonance outside pop culture. It's actually more difficult to "write" with a paintbrush than you would think. I have a #6 round brush and actually think I might want something smaller, but this is all right for a first go.
Thanks for visiting.
