I am excited to be participating in Dina Wakley’s new monthly challenge. For this month, the prompt is “Show Me WHY You Create”.
I create because I LOVE it:
and it fulfills a DREAM:
Now that I am retired, I find creative fulfillment by making art…art of all kinds.
This is actually a part of a larger watercolor Mixed Media piece that I created for a mail art envelope using Roben-Marie Smith’s video tutorial: https://youtu.be/M9h0j_YqZPQ
Here is my envelope:
I used Dina Wakley’s Heavy Body Paints colors: Magenta, Lemon, Tangerine, Turquiose, and Blackberry Violet. If you have not used Dina’s paints, they are creamy and highly pigmented… I love them.
I also used the following Golden Heavy Body Paints: White, Payne’s Gray, and Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold.
I also used pencil, black pen, Uni-ball Signo white pen, Stabilo Marks All black pencil, waterbrush, stencils, stamps… and a couple of hand-carved stamps: numbers and wheel…
I hope you will decide to join Dina and create your own Mixed MEdia piece. Go to dinastamps.typepad.com for more details. If you do, be sure to use the tag #ShowUsYourMEdia and #RangerInk.
Love you all!
