Here we go with another Stash Dive Challenge, our
toys tools of choice for May are; Paint, Gelli Plate, Stencils, acrylic paint, pens & pencils. Go forage, hunt out your favourite materials and lets get messy. Plus free online workshop series.
This month I challenged myself to try new colours for my palette, baby pink, lemon and Pale umber, Powder blue and also orange! Pastels are so off topic for me so it was time to give them a try. I’ll share my results with you later on. How about trying a new medium, there are so many interesting options out there, add some dimension to your projects with texture paste, layer things up with some gel medium which is not just a glue but can be mixed with paint for a glaze or as a resist to certain areas of your work too.
I hope you will join me for this challenge and try some different colours in your palettes too, would love to see what you come up with.
Need some inspiration, check out my mixed media workshop series I posted a couple of years ago.
Lets make something in May, if your mojo has been flagging lately, grab an old paperback and get messy with the paints on the pages, its a great way to kick start your imagination. Rip tear and punch out the results for some great motifs and backgrounds for your mixed media projects.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
