This is Karen, back with a Mixed Media with Karen for June. When I got the new Market Street collection, I knew that I had to immediately sit down and play with the beautiful 3x4 cards and some of that amazing gold. So I sat down and glued a bunch of the cards to my page without overthinking it.
I then added some of the new gold tape, a few gold bits here and there and some more ephemera.
You can see all the sparkle form this light:
Then it was time to paint, I took out a bunch of my acrylics and just finger painted all over the page. Again, I tried not to overthink anything. I just had fun and kept going until it felt enough.
Then I took out my 12x12 chipboard sheet and added a bunch more embellishments and my title. I was thinking about my husband the whole time I made this page. About how he's so kind to me and loves me so
unconditionally even when I am not the easiest person to be around. I am very grateful for him. The title says: You and me, we are perfect together.
And since the straight shot doesn't really do this page justice, I wanted to show you how incredibly shimmery it is:
A simple, fun one this month. I love it when a product pulls you to create and this is how the Market Street line has been to me. It's calling me to sit and make art.
Have you played with yours lately? I'd love to see some of your wonderful work so link me up in the comments.
