I love mixed media. Especially mixed media that centers around paper, paint, and collaged elements; like this Winter Art Girl. There’s just something about collage that I have always been drawn to and always enjoyed. Today’s WIP Wednesday is about taking a break from your “main art form” to express yourself and your heart through another art medium. Come on over and join me to see my Winter Wonderland Snow Girl. I made this as a dashboard for my Traveler’s Notebook. As a bonus today I’ll teach you to make your own.
Today’s post is a little non-clay related, but I think sometimes it benefits us to take a break from our top art form and dabble in another. Why? Because it hones our artistic skills, eye, and our passion for our main art form. My goal in today’s post is to inspire you to try something new, maybe even something like what I’ve done with this winter art girl!
Fresh out of the hospital just after Christmas and not having much endurance yet to complete any clay projects, I had the itch to make art in some form. I had several drawings I had managed to sketch while sitting in a hospital bed. One of which was this vibrant little girl. I had drawn her within the perimeters of the size of a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. At the time I wasn’t sure if I wanted her to be just a sketch that I would later charcoal, paint, or collage at a later time. What I did know was that at some point she would turn into a dashboard for my Traveler’s Notebook (TN).
Not being able to work for any longer than 2 hours at any one time yet, I knew whatever I did would have to be short and quick. So … collaging and painting her seemed like my best option.
