The exciting thing is that she is JUST getting into art, painting, and mixed media, and is like a SPONGE when I show her the things that I've been working on! It's pretty great having someone ooh and ahh over everything I put in front of them!
We each created a piece of mixed media art - taking turns completing various steps and adding textures, objects and artistic elements.
We started by choosing a colour that we wanted to work with, and then sifted through my stock of papers, ephemera, fabrics, textures and objects to find pieces of our chosen colours to combine into a cohesive work.
Laura chose pink (which is great since I tend to not use pink so much in my own work and had LOADS of materials for her to use!) and I chose blue (surprise, surprise!)
It features light blues and an image from Alice in Wonderland of Alice staring at the fleeing white rabbit with bewilderment.
|Lastly, I put tissue paper around the edges using an acrylic medium to create transparent texture.|
I love it! :D
