Another four patterned butterflies, drawn using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on a Microsoft Surface Pen with the Microsoft Surface Pen as the input device.

Stay Strong – Mixed Media

StayStrong_1May2017_AngelaPorter

More Foamiran flowers, this time rather more stylised or abstract.  Background is texture paste mixed with distress ink and some pearlescent paint from Liquitex and stenciled over a distress ink background.  Papers coloured with distress inks or distress oxide inks.

Embossed paper and ACEO card are coloured with various acrylic paints from Pebeo and Liquitex.  They’ve been used to create a collaged pattern behind the previously made ACEO/ATC paint.

Liquid pearls have been added in places, and gems in the flower centres.

I die-cut the leaves from Centaura pearl paper and coloured them with Copic markers; the sheen they have is subtle and fits in nicely with the more pastel colours used.

Be Your Beautiful Self – Mixed Media

A second mixed media work from me.  Texture paste through stencils, distress inks, diecuts, various papers I’ve coloured, some that have been embossed.  Metallic and iridescent paints.  And gems.

Be Authentic – Mixed Media

BeAuthentic_30April2017_AngelaPorter

I’ve mostly finished this piece of mixed media art.  I think I need to add some pearls or similar, maybe some shadows around the flowers and foliage, but it is, in essence, complete.

I’m quite pleased with it, especially as I kept to a mainly monochrome colour scheme of blues and greens, but pinks and purples had to make a little bit of an appearance just to add some accents.

It’s another big one – A3 in size.  Lots of Foamiran flowers have been used; I used Distress crayons and a baby wipe to add colour to the white foamiran before heating and shaping each layer.  The colours are the same as some used in the background.

My focal point is an ACEO or ATC that I made a few weeks ago at the start of my mixed media explorations.

In places you can pick out the subtle sparkle on the background and foliage – achieved by spraying with a mist of gold perfect pearls.

Many of the coloured papers I used in the collage were created using a Gelli Plate and PaperArtsy fresco paints.

A fair amount of metallic and iridescent paints from Pebeo, Liquitex and Daler-Rowney have been used too.
