Art Studio blog, but you will need to search the archives because that blog has tons of mixed media posts.
I used a stencil that is part of the Yudu Stencil painting machine that allows you to burn your own screens. It was a great investment for me at the time, since I love creating my own artwork with stencils. (You'll also find a bunch of stencil techniques on my Art Studio blog as a fairly recent posting).
Anyway, I ran this through one of my apps as well and softened the colors, added a bit of texture that looks like more of a tissue overlay. This is more of a summer version and I just love how it feels so soft and lazy. I will eventually be using my own photos of the remarkable koi I took while in Las Vegas for one of my watercolor paintings. I have so many ideas for future works.
Mixing media is another passion of mine, one that I hope to indulge in everyday this year. Whether I am watching a workshop DVD, reading a How-To book, or physically out taking photos for future paintings, it's all coming together for me this year. An accumulation of 40+ years of knowledge and I'm still finding new things to explore.
I'm contemplating offering some all-inclusive: "mixed media artist retreats", in the near future. I'll offer more information, as the details get worked out.
