To give a better understand of Mixed Media, i just go wiki and get the summary as below:
Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed.
Mixed media tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. For example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work.
When creating a painted or photographed work using mixed media it is important to choose the layers carefully and allow enough drying time between the layers to ensure the final work will have structural integrity. If many different media are used it is equally important to choose a sturdy foundation upon which the different layers are imposed.Now, here is my first Mixed Media Canvas! I just list down what I've used to create this art work.
- 12" x 12" Canvas
- Tissue Papers
- Wrapping papers
- Old news papers
- Patterns papers
- Golden Regular Gel (Matte)
- Golden High Flow Acrylic Paint
Below Canvas is my own project after the class, and the material i used is almost the same as above. The different is i'm using the normal Acrylic Paint instead of the Fluid High Flow Acrylic Paint. Notice that the color will be solid and the layer actually can't really see through compare with the previous artwork.
For the image, I'm using Let-love-fly Stamp from Unity, and this image touch my heart when i first saw from Unity page. Then i added some Prima Flower and the butterfly from Webster Pages.
