My First Try at Mixed Media…a canvas


A few weeks ago I stumbled across an artist under the name of Finnabair. I believe her name is Anna, and she is from Poland. I was so inspired by her expression with mixed media I just had to give it a try. So try I did, and here are some photos of my start to finish. (I think I’m finished, every time I look at it I want to add something more) I’m not quite sure why it scared me to start, maybe it was this 12 x 12 canvas staring back at me needing some creative attention. So here you go, I really had fun with this one and I cannot wait to do another, maybe not as big though. Anyway I hope you like it, I do.

I actually made a “tag” first using some of her technique’s that I learned from watching a Prima tutorial with Anna  on a live web cast. Since that webcast all I could think about was “mixed media” so I made the tag and posted it on Finnabair Facebook Page and you know what? She actually “liked” it.  I guess that was enough of a push to go ahead and try a canvas.  

I have a friend that I met in a Facebook Group called the Craft Hole, her name is Claire and she lives in the UK.  She is very talented as well and her work with mixed media is awesome.  She has been trying to get me to try it and although she hasn’t seen my work yet, I think she will be pleased.  You can see her work on her website CK Creations.
