Wanderlust Update

It is some time since I have posted my work from my Wanderlust journey so here is an update.
This was a mixed media inspired project from a Finnabair lesson. Those cute insects came from a packet of kids toys from KMart.

The March challenge for Scrapping Outback required you to use Fuschia/pink, Purple, Teal and Black. These are some of my favourite combinations so how could I not have a go. This is what I came up with and the gorgeous photo is my Mum c.1943 (age 20). I love vintage photos!

Boy Oh Boy

Loving this gorgeous photo of Tom which I have used on the March Challenge for Scrap the Boys. The inspiration was this gorgeous mood board. (Love these colours)

And this is what I came up with.

Everything Art Update Continued

More experimenting with acrylics. The first was to paint with a brush using different colours to the object. The second was done by mixing heavy body gel with the paint to create texture, applying it using a palette knife.

Zentangling class with Beckah Krahula.

These are from the class delivered by Flora Bowley - Brave Intuitive Art. The first is on a large canvas and the others in art books.  The last one being my favourite was done with Dylusion paints which I found flowed easier to achieve my desired outcome.

 Book Prompt - My Past. Using some techniques from Dina Wakeley.

Everything Art - Week 12

Thought it was time I documented my Wanderlust journey which has been taking up a lot of my time to date. This has been an amazing experience and I have learned so much.

The above were from Suzani inspired art and taught by Kasia Krzyminska.

This project was for the February challenge and we had to use some inspiration from something in our house. I chose a dot painted cushion. With this I won the challenge and received a lovely package of Prima products.

Book Prompt - the bravest moment in my life.

Week 8 - Joanne Sharpe - Whimsical Wanderlust Lettering class.

Week 10 - this gorgeous journal under the instruction of Karen Michel - lots of fun using up old papers, cardboard and unfinished projects for pages,

Book Prompt - What I see in the Mirror, I am now getting more confident with lots of layers and not taking myself too seriously.

Another class from Kasia - using acrylics.
