take things found in your yard (sticks, rocks, leaves, etc.) then add different kinds of dried beans, marbles; tie some of the sticks with raffia, cording, fabric...use your imagination to create and make your own collage
I tend to work fast so I enjoy applying a layer of texture or pattern in my mixed media surfaces quickly. Inspired by my own creation a while back (see here) I have started using my cardboard rolls to roll on my texture and pattern. I cover the surface with all kinds of everyday things. Bubble wrap makes for great polka dots!
What a great idea!! Do you know how many things we could do with this idea?? colored paint on white shirts, or use bleach in a spray bottle on colored shirts. I may need a 2nd job to pay for my crafting habit :D
technique: Gesso Brick Technique 1. mist base area with a golden toned glimmer mist 2. mix equal amounts of gesso + GLASS BEAD GEL and spread over brick template 3. lift template and let dry 4. take embossing ink and rub it over bricks and brush metallic powder pigments over it (perfect pearls)
