Mixed Media Canvas by Mandy

Hi Friends! Here is my sample of this month's fun "Patteren Palooza" challenge hosted by Dana!
 I took a mixed media approach to this month's challenge by using 3 different patterned stencils (flowers, circles, checks) and adding texture, embossing, paints and mists to the stencil work.  I was inspired by Anna Dabrowska aka "Finnabair" to create an altered head piece on the photo using various elements.  Keeping in mind to make the overall creation an original....
 We were generously sponsored this month by Jelly Park Stamps and here you can see the Flip Flops. I cut out the digital image and added it to the canvas adhering it with Mod Podge.  I colored the image with watercolor pencils.
 Our other sponsor for this month is Molossi Chipboard. I altered three of their chipboard keys shown above...
Here is more close-up's of the patterned details -
Here is what the project looked like before I added highlights and shadows to give it dimension.

  1. Stunning mixed media piece. Love love the patterned texture and rich colors. TF inspiration Mandy

  2. I love Finnabar's work, but she tends to blend her colors and they always feel muted to me while I love bright and somewhat distinct. I LOVE this. Gorgeous textures and colors. Great inspiration.
