So, it's February 1st and that means it's time to share the next page of my mixed media inspired calendar. Each month, I make a page using my mixed media products and techniques and hang it on the wall in my kitchen. I want to see how my style changes over the year and I want share my art with my family.
So, here's February's page...
This page started as a mop-up page. There was a bit of orange and some pink when I started. I love the bright colors of the Dylusions spray inks. I use them a lot. On this page, I used Bubblegum Pink, Squeezed Orange and Crushed Grape.
Here's a closeup. You can see the Chequered Dot and Dotted Flower stencils from the Dylusions line. I really love Dotted Flowers. I seem to use it every chance I get these days!
And here's another favorite stencil: Dina Wakley's Spilled Hearts. Have to use hearts for February, right?
This page was about experimenting with new color palettes or at least not always using blue! It's something I'm working on right now. I find it's easier to try new color combinations when I use my favorite stencils. That way not everything is new. And you know what? I love how bright this page is. Here's to trying new things!
I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend!
ps: Here's a link to the page I made for January.
