Howdy, friends! I know December is a busy month, but you have until January 17th to participate in this challenge. I love this one, it’s a great push for the new year.
Create a piece of art about being unstoppable. What are your personal speed bumps that slow you down? How do you triumph over them?
Here’s my page. I did a collage on a burlap page in the Media Journal. I love the texture and dimension! I adhere most items with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher so I don’t have to mess with glue on fabric.
I love digging through my collage papers box to pull out random bits and make collages. This page started with many random pieces. I started layering them and then put the stamped images on top of all of the layers. My tip for creating collages: make sure you have a strong overlap. If you don’t overlap strongly, your collage will feel disconnected and the elements will seem unrelated to each other.
I colored the stamped images from Oops, Oh Well and Scribbly Wings with Scribble Sticks and a bit of acrylic paint, and then I speckled them with Sterling.
I am hard on myself in most areas of my life, EXCEPT for art. In art, I give myself a break. I let myself fail. I let myself make ugly art. I truly don’t care if what I do isn’t good. That makes me unstoppable because I am not holding myself back.
I can’t wait to see your interpretation of the challenge. Please share your art. We love it!
Challenge Rules Recap
I want to put the “me” back in mixed media. All art is personal, whether it be a card or an art journal page or a painting. Join me as we begin a series of monthly challenges and prompts that will fuel your creative spirit and help you delve into the ME of MEdia.
Note this challenge does not take the place of the monthly challenges we have in the Dina Wakley Media Tribe Facebook group. If you’re not a member of the tribe, please join us! Artists in the group post lots of cool art and inspiration.
