Got a new project for you today that I did for Gauche Alchemy and it all started with a another thrift store find and Julie's background technique:
Following Julie's steps, I first created my background, I left the sewing pattern on there - accidentally because I apparently can't follow directions, lol (I did add some gel medium and glitter because...well, it's glitter.) I let that dry and it turned out dark brown which was great but I really wanted to add some more colors to it. I decided to sleep on it and in bed, my mind starting to think about all of the creative possibilities (yes, I even dream about making stuff, lol) which kept me awake so at about 1:00AM I said, "Screw it" and got back up to finish this wall hanging...and here it is:
I've been wanting to do something like this with Gauche Alchemy's Mixed Media Color Kits for a long time now. I've always pictured doing a rainbow or some sort of colorful something. For this project, I just referenced a color wheel and went from there.
I got out almost all of my color kits and started laying things out on the background. I was pretty proud of myself when I was finished until it hit me that I now had to go back through and glue all these pieces down. Oh well, I just went for it and finished up about 2:00AM I believe. I decided to add "Create" to the center to always remind me to get to making something. :D
I've always said that our Mixed Media Color Kits are my favorite thing in the shop and I was so happy to finally see this project in my head become a reality!
