This is an 8.5" x 11" chipboard that I covered with a variety of paints, waxes, and inks. I am extremely new to Mixed Media art, this only being my fifth project or so. I'm still not used to what paints react with what inks, etc.
I painted the chipboard with white gesso and then did some stenciling with texture paste and added the gears and pieces from a cut up Foundry embossing page. Then I sprayed on a variety of ink sprays only to find some were very dark and would not lighten even when diluted with water. The pink area came out a bit darker than I like.
This collage reminds me of unicorns and fairies --- the colors, anyways. It's the first attempt at making a Mixed Media collage that was intended for a female. All my past projects were ones that I made for my nephews.
Guess I'll try to punch some holes in it and add it to a journal I want to start working in.
