This past month (and a few months ago) we created mixed media collaged canvases. We used stencils, patterned patters, tissue paper, gloss medium, acrylic paints, and used brushes, incorrectly. Yup, we scrubbed, slathered, gooped and enjoyed every minute of it. Since it was in honor of Spring finally being upon us, our inspiration went to the sky using stencils and paper with birds, bees, owls and hot air balloons. Starting off we layered tissue paper to our canvas, then began painting and stenciling. We added cut paper pieces from cardstock and then applied more layers of paint to blend it into the background.
I love that everyone had a completely different final project and walked away with new knowledge of materials. Enjoy the photos and for fun I also tossed in a sample from the January workshop where hearts were our inspiration at the bottom.
