Good morning everyone! This is Karen Grunberg and I'm here with my December mixed media blog post.
This month, I wanted to have fun with some of the beautiful papers and embellishments in the Lost and Found 3 line.
As I looked through the papers, the labels jumped out at me and gave me the inspiration for my page. So I cut them out and started laying them down in my book. I didn't over-think it, I picked two corners and cut out the two pieces of paper I liked the best. I painted my background a muted gray and glued the papers on the edges.
Supplies:Lost and Found 3-Oliver:Bingo glitter paper,Collage glitter paper,enamel dots,chipboard,stamps,sticker sheet;Lost and Found 3-Ruby:sticker sheet;Lush:black velvet alphas;All is Bright:stamps;Kraft Funday-Everyday Fun:stamps
I then used the sticker sheets and chipboard accents to add some layers and shimmer to my page. I grabbed some contrasting alphas and wrote my main word (free) and started adding more letter stickers.
After adding my title, I also used some of the texture stamps to add a little interest and layering to my background. The gray looked too dull to me and I like the noise and texture the stamps added. I colored the
edges of my page with some black paint and I was done.
The title reads: You are not bound by the labels others have put on you. You are free. Only you choose who you are. Only you.
And here's a closeup that shows you all the beautiful shimmering glitter Lost and Found 3 accessories and papers have:
And there you go, another fun mixed media and collage page. My challenge to you this month is to pull out some paper you love and start playing with it. Don't save them for a special occasion, every single day you
live is a special occasion. Use the supplies you love!
Thanks for letting me share my art and see you next time!
