This is the theme at Mixed Media Monday this week, and here is my enchanted land where the sun ALWAYS shines : )
This is done on an 11 x 14 wrapped canvas, and I just had alot of fun using all different types of mediums. First I just started putting down colors using my Golden acrylics. I love these paints so much--I just don't understand why they have to be so expensive (I'm very protective of them). And then I started collaging my different scrapbook papers for the mountains, trees, and birds. After that, I used neocolor crayons and colored pens. I loved making this piece.
And I have to give credit to the artist Lierre Foest for inspiring me. I was looking around on the web after I saw the theme for this week, and that's when I discovered her. I first found her on you tube. At first, I thought all of her work was on large surfaces, but they're not. The majority of them are on ACEO (2.5 x 3.5) cards and 4 x 6 pieces called OSWOA--I've never heard this term before. Does anyone know what that one stands for? I can't stop looking at her work--all the details on such tiny surfaces--she also prefers 1 x1 surfaces too!
If you like this type of colorful, whimsical art, then you will love this video:
