OWL Mixed Media Art with Colorations

Art_Anthology_Kitsnbitscraps_owl_art11

Hi Veronica here and today I am sharing a little piece of canvas art.  This month Art Anthology has challenged our Design Team ladies to be “inspired” by an Artist that you admire.  I chose to be inspired by Cori Dantini.  I love her whimsical view of nature and her choice of colors.

I started off with Art Anthology’s new texture paste “mud”.  I love the smoothness of this medium and it also gave me the texture I was looking for to start my layering process.

My first layer was some pretty vellum that I tore and adhered to my blank canvas.  I then sprayed some colorations “salted caramel” and the new Fairy Dust: “Gilded Gold” shimmer spray.

Next I took out some water color paper and started to sketch my owl.

I then used my Art Anthology work mat and sprayed my colorations on the mat so I could start to color in my drawing. I love the way the colorations bead on the craft mat and easy clean up after.

I decided to add some dimensional crystal to my “beak” because I wanted it to be brighter.  Next I picked out some pattern paper and added my third layer to my canvas.  I tore and chalked the edges of the paper before adhering to my canvas.

I cut out my sketch drawing and glued it to the top of my canvas.  Next I had to use some more colorations around the image to “blend” it in.  I also used some water color pencils.  To outline some of my drawing I used my Faber Castel pit pen.

Lastly, I added some prima flowers, cut out leaves from corrugated colorations sprayed board and a leaf I cut out of my vellum.  Along the edges I added sorbet “Vegas Gold”

Thank you for stopping by and come back to see what my team members at Art Anthology will design for you next.
