I have been going through a lot of mixed media videos on YouTube and I came across Andy Skinner's technique called Splash and image transfer. I have also been following an amazing artist Betty Franks Krause of Mystic Tulip Mixed Media. She has plenty of YouTube videos and is generously sharing her tips and techniques of adding layers of texture and colors to Art pieces and mixed media works.
This is acrylics and inks on canvas inspired by this video here, I started with a canvas with lots of colors, random stamping, texture and ink drips and old book pages.......
old book pages teared into circles and added with gel medium.....
I am about to finish another one using Image transfer and will share shortly .
Paper Artsy has a unique theme for this month which is to use fragile papers. The design team has put up lots of inspiration, I was inspired by Kate Yetter's project using book pages and the striking focal image used by her.
