well hello hello from warm and cozy Mexico! I hope everyone is doing well.. hAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here is to a WONDERFUL 2013!!!
I have a fun treat today.. A video i did using the Scarlet Lime Mixed Media kit for December! Super excited about this kit because I included some funky stuff and REALLY wanted to teach you some new things I recently discovered when trying to make my own "clay" look.
This month's kit included a fun configuration box from Tim Holtz, as well as lots of other goodies.. but I wanted to use it in a non conventional sort of way. Most of what you see if also very "distressed".. and I wanted to create something fun and bright with it! So here we go!
I wanted to make sure that EVERY part of the pieces in the kit were altered in some way of another.. just not "adhered" onto the "canvas". I really wanted EVERy piece to be it's own artsy point of interest.
The clips are from Maya road and were originally grey wire. of course I painted them.. added a book paper behind them and then shaded it and doodles on it.
Included some fun embellishments that we altered as well. Painted, stitched, doodled
Even the key was painted and doodled on. really wanted to keep this entire thing BRIGHT! But the best part of it all? Making your own "clay" out of tin foil and book paper!
So.. here is the 30 min video that shows you the entire process from start to finish! Hope you enjoy!! can't WAIT to see what you do with the kit! AND YES.. if you are wondering.. WE DO have these kits left in our store! Check out our store www.scarletlime.com the store part! We have them in the mixed media kit section!
Off to go paint some more with Ben and Jesse Reno! xoxox
