'Dreamer', art journal, mixed media.
Some of the main ideas in this workshop were:
1. find some photos of yourself as a child and have a conversation with youself
2. Use sandpaper to 'distress' paint
3. Use image transfers
My focal image is of me around 9 years old in my summer frock at the local Gala day in Linlithgow, Scotland.
This image is waxed using a method I saw on youtube at:
I loved waxing the print-out image. I used clear encaustic medium but I think I will try beeswax next.
The image of myself at the top right is a packing tape transfer...this worked quite well.
I think this workshop helped me to understand how to use multiple layers to give a richly layered and interesting page.
Thanks to 21 secrets course!
