I want to get more confident with layering paints and other colouring mediums, so when this post went past on The Crafter’s Workshop blog earlier this year, I thought I’d have a go at replicating the style.
This wasn’t going to be a Halloween piece. This was originally going to be an autumnal scene. My starting point for this was a challenge to use half a bag of multicoloured sequins from the September Craft Box subscription. They’re not on here. They’ve been hand sewn onto a foam heart on a completely different project that I had to come up with when I realised the brightly coloured sequins weren’t going to end up anywhere near this panel.
My first mixed media canvas panel. I’m not sure what the original inspiration was, but I had the idea of standing inside a room looking through a window at the moon and once I had enough of a picture in my mind, I started creating it on canvas.
I love my Copics, but I also love trying new things and playing with different styles and techniques. And well… anything that gives me an excuse to go shopping for more stash! At the end of last year I decided to leap waaaaaaay out of my comfort zone and try some dimensional mixed media.
