Hello! Today I'm very excited to show you my first project for Mixed Media Place!
I made a canvas about my two passions: music and mixed media art.
I started with sketching the trumpet: first I made a draft drawing with my pencil to use it as a template. Then I stamped with several stamps around and on it in order to create the main design, the trumpet. Finally I did some doodling with a permanent pen to make some final touches. It was really a fun way to create a design without actually drawing!
I also made some shades with the pencil to create depth and make it more realistic.
When I was happy with the result, I covered the design with a piece of paper and started working with the background of the main composition. My first step is always to add gesso with a stencil. After that, I made a lot of splashes with many colors of differed media like watercolors and sprays. Of course it can't be a mixed media background without stamps, and what would be more perfect for this canvas than a stamp with music score, right? I also used a stamp with flowers, that's all.
Then, I glued all the embellishments, the letters 'ART' and the word 'MAKE' on the trumpet. As a final touch, I distressed the hole canvas with the 'Vintage Photo' distress ink.
