Are you ready for a Tyvek transformation? Lesson 4 of Mixed Media Melange over at the Land of Lost Luggage taught us how to create a mixed media piece, with lightweight Tyvek as the base. I put my own spin on this lesson, and had so much FUN with it! Isn’t that what art is all about? I think so. So, I photographed my piece during various phases of the process. So, heeeeeeeeeeeeere it is!
Phase one – collage, using Golden adhesive products, and various collage elements on a 17″ x 11″ piece of lightweight Tyvek.
Phase 2 – Golden fluid acrylics paint added.
Phase 3 – another layer of collage -white and light-colored tissue papers added with Golden Polymer Medium (Gloss).
And, the final phase (so far) – I used my Crafter’s Workshop Template, with Golden’s interference paint:
Woo hoo! Updated this post to add – My piece is featured on the
Crafter’s Workshop Blog! How cool is that? 🙂
So, what do you think? Am I done? I continue to find it difficult to decide when an artpiece is finished. I’ve ruined a couple of pieces by going a bit too far, so I am trying to learn from my past mistakes. I just think this needs something…if I want to use it as a standalone art piece. I may add some stitching, or some grunge with micaceous iron oxide paint…? I welcome any feedback/suggestions! I would love to hear your comments, so please don’t be shy!
