The first challenge is HERO. I had a lot of fun with this challenge! Being that it is the month of October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to make my "Hero" a breast cancer survivor and superhero! For selling purposes she'll be called "Hope" for this challenge I shall call her the "Pink Avenger" - Saving the Tatas One At A Time! Thought the world could use a little humor! Not to make light of women battling cancer but to spread hope and joy even in the worst of times. I will have included a tutorial in the Project 52 blog on how I created this piece. I hope you like it! It's completely different from my normal art but I had fun creating it!
Here she is, "The Pink Avenger"! Sassy, isn't she?
Here are some helpful tips in getting started in mixed media:
- Never throw anything out! Even bits of scraps can make or break a piece. Look at everyday objects in a new light. This will make you have lots of stuff lying around but you never know when you'll need or want to use it! I even keep my cup cozies from Starbucks, it makes for great texture in pieces!
- Gel Medium is your best friend!! I use Golden Gel Mediums in all my art it has so many uses! Invest in a bigger jar you'll need it!
More to come later!!
