Wedding Series: Mixed Media - will you try it?

jan 2014 019   Hey there creative people Rita Barakat here! When I am out and about I hear two things- either you are an avid follower of the blog and never do any mixed media because you are intimidated by mixed media but you love looking at it or you just cant get enough! Either way, todays post is for you!  Mixed media- will you try it? Time to get your hands dirty! (Or get your gloves out- yes I know you!) "The best is yet to come" would that be a great theme for  a wedding? Exciting times starting on a new venture ! I made this little canvas as I was thinking of a table with gifts and mementos at a wedding. How sweet would it be there with the other best wishes for the bride and groom! This project is simple enough for the beginner as a quick and easy project if you are an old pro!

photo 2 (6)   This was fairly simple to make, using  Champagne and Butterscotch  Gelatos™  and Neutral Mixed Media Aquarelles. Simply draw on the canvas the make it drip using a very wet paint brush to mix the paint in that area.     photo 4 (3) Hold up your canvas and let it drip! Once it's dry add your embellishments!         jan 2014 021 It's hard to get a good picture but here is the Textural Accents Glass Bead Glitter Gel! Love it!(On the burlap.) I also flicked the canvas with my very wet paint brush on the bottom! So a sweet sentiment to wish a bride and groom, (or really anyone headed on a new adventure in life!) good luck! So what do you think? Will you try it? (You can do it! )

This is sooooooo beautiful!!...I have fallen in love with gelatos!!....my FAVORITE coloring tool!!!....mixed media is my art style...thanks for the inspiration!

What a beautiful canvas and such a great idea! I assume the heart has been die cut...did you prep it beforehand to keep it from fraying? TFS

Andrene- I did not use a die cut, (old school) I folded it in half and cut it with a very sharp scissors! Also I am used DCWV's 6x6 burlap stack- the burlap is paper backed so you don't get as much fraying!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!

LOVE IT ALL - Thank You for sharing your AWESOME INSPIRATION Rita!!!

... I nearly have everything I need to make one, I have a gold & silver Gelato, a canvas, some burlap, Gesso (I understand that a coating makes for better drips) and inspiration. I have plenty of glue & glitter to substitute for the Textural Accents Glass Bead Glitter Gel, now I just need to get some Aquarelles and maybe some more Gelatos.

REALLY LOVE this and look forward to making one too :)

Thank you ladies!!!XOXO

love this Rita. So clever and I love the texture.

What a beautiful wall piece. I never have done mixed media but it's looks like so much fun.
