I’ve had a few requests to show how I do some of my mixed media art. Ask and you shall receive.
I filmed this about two weeks ago. Then I had troubles with downloading/uploading, which software to use… yada yada yada.
Here is my first edited (poorly) video. I decided to make a coffee filter collage piece to show you my process from start to finish. No planning was done.. I just took out a stash of my “stuff” and see where it took me.
I don’t need to write much more here on the blog, as the video will give you all you need. I used this same process using used dryer sheets or on a piece of fabric (I like muslin).
I hope you enjoy… and I apologize ahead of time for any hiccups in the editing (in addition to a whining dog, no not my husband.. ha ha). I’m just getting the hang of this. I think little parts got cut out when I did the editing. I can see that now. But you get the idea here on adding layers and fun ephemera.
It’s 18 minutes long… so sit back and relax. Silence all cell phones, as they say in the movie theaters.
Here are some closer still shots of the final piece.
So many uses… cut up your favorites parts and add to your journals and collages. Imagine this as a unique book cover with sewn pages. Sew it on a canvas bag or add it to a quilt project. It’s a pretty strong piece by the time you’re done with the layers of fabric, etc. and gel medium.
Here is a reminder of what you can do with the full circle filter: See how I talk about putting this one together HERE.
Thanks for stopping by and for all your compliments, kind comments and some of you who asked for a video on how it put my art together.
Send this along to a friend who might enjoy it.
Please give this a try.. So easy.. I want to see yours. Send me pictures and I’ll put them on my blog.
Love having fun with you. More to come.
