Three Mediums and a Stencil walked into a bar...

This month at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog the challenge is Three Mediums and a Stencil

This month is sponsored by Marabu Mixed Media Products.  The have sprays, crayons, stencils, paint etc...






Here is my take- so abstract, colorful, and big shapes not my usual but sometimes it is good to work outside the lines.  I didn't even use distress ink- hell has offically frozen over.

I started with a blank journal page painted with gesso, then colored with yellow Marabu art spray along with some Lindy's and plenty of water.


Lay stencil on dry page and sponge with Marabu Mousse.  The mousse is quite funky it leaves a stucco texture finish.

I added a black outline inside bird, then sponged white acrylic paint around bird to dilute the intensity of the background.


Next cut out leaves with old encyclopedia pages glued along left side.  Color inside of bird on flowers with yellow art crayons.


Finished by coloring leaves and adding doodles.

Have Fun!
