Our new group The Latest Trends in Mixed Media Arts
has a challenge this month where you have to use either texture,
3-D paste, or molding paste - either a brass or plastic stencil,
or a rubber stamp, any type of paint, any color palette,
and you can add one found object and one other thing
of your choice.
Well, since I can't officially participate
in the challenge I just had to try it!
I used molding paste on a 5x7 canvas,
pressed a leaf from one of the trees
that we have here in the backyard,
I then applied a yellow glaze,
and then sprayed it with Ranger's
color wash. I applied some brown
polish to some of the areas to make
the leaf stand out more and then used
different colors of rub and buff.
I used the "found" rusted safety pin that
I gathered today and added some beads to it. I had fun with this!
