Mixed Media Place.........The Beat Goes On

Mixed media wooden block with polystyrene heart, plastic tubing, metal embellishments, paper and acrylic paint.
I'm sure by now you all know that Finnabair has created her own range of mixed media gels and pastes.
My little collaged wooden block with it's 3D heart, its plastic plumbing and metal workings, is held together entirely by 3D Matte Gel and Soft Gloss Gel from Finnabair's art Basics range.
Some alterations were made to the heart's background; the pattern was "too much", it was painted just red.

There are lots of "bits" making up this piece, all with different surfaces........wood, metal, chipboard, polystyrene, plastic and paper and the 3D Matte Gel has been used throughout to secure them. An added bonus is how easy and "clean" it is to use and how it dries completely clear.
Using Soft Gloss Gel with Acrylic paint makes it more translucent, and then easier to build up richly coloured layers of paint.

A list of products I used can be found HERE at Mixed Media Place and they can be purchased from HERE at Mixed Media Place Store.

Thanks for visiting. May your heart be full of joy this week.

paperDVIZHNIK Challenge No. 48......Colour.

Challenge No. 48 is up at paperDVIZHNIK. This month it's about colour. I think they're beautiful colours, both individually and as a combination.
Visit the paperDVIZHNIK blog HERE for some DT inspiration.
My page has been created using a combination of collaged lace and tissue along with wet embossing, water colour and fibres.
The photo is of my daughter and she is actually wearing a very fluffy, wooly hat. I've just exaggerated it by adding a whole lot of fibres and threads, which the birds are having a fun time in.

Collaged lace, embossed lace and a little bird cage hidden amongst it.

Thanks for visiting me today. Have a colourful week and I hope lots of nice things happen to keep a happy smile on your face.
