Soul Sisters


Hi all! I have been busy creating some art journal pages and a canvas these past few days! 
Lots of ink, gel medium, and gesso! And mess! I was so happy!!

I created this 12 x 12 canvas using lots of old papers I had, lots of modeling paste, lots of flowers, metal bits and a few chipboard pieces and gems! And of course.. lots and lots of different ink sprays.

I usually don't do this color scheme, but it actually turned out better than I hoped!

I also am using this piece for a couple challenge blogs I follow...

The first one is over at ARTastic. We had to use this piece from John Miels for our inspiration, as well as typography somehow. 


I took inspiration from the colors used in this piece for my canvas. Typography are the words on my base paper as well as these alphabet chippies I have had for forever.




The next challenge I used was from Mixed Media Mojo where we were challenge to recycle and use metal. I recycled the flower sprig at the far right.. it was on a piece I tore apart ages ago but could never find the right project to use it on. I also used a ton of metal embellishments on this too.



The last challenge is for Mixed Media Monthly Challenge where we were challenge to use dimension on our projects, which I think I achieved!





Thanks for taking a peek at my project!
