Mixed Media Class - Kit and Clowder

Image
Like I mentioned in my mixed media bottle post I subcribed to the mixed media class thought by Alyce Keegan from Kit and Clowder.
I have been part of her create and learn classes for a year now and she is an amazing teacher.

The mixed media class has 3 projects, today I finished my first one.

I used some different items then Alyce but I tired to stay close to the original. Like I didnt have any doilies around so I used some lace to make the 'fan' in her hair. 
The flowers are foam, wood and metal. 
It was fun to see how the different materials work with the ink.

Ok, I told myself a few days ago "Sabrina, Go do Alyce's mixed media class first before you continue on the bottle" Did I listen to myself? Ofcourse not!

I was so excited that all my mixed media supplies finally got here and I just had to play with them!

I colored up this little genie saturday, see my other post for more details on the colors.  I was so inpired by this image that I just had to finish the bottle! I couldn't get it out of my mind!

Now its not perfect I had some problems with some techniques,  like the stencilling with modeling paste that was rather difficult on a rounded surface,  but it did capture the style I was going for so I am quite happy with my first mixed media project.
Calling this my 'Before' project after finishing Alyce's Kit and Clowder mixed  media class I'll make another bottle with the learned techniques :)

Tonight I have little genie to share with you :) Had so much fun coloring her :D
The plan is to make a mixed media bottle for her but it might be a bit to much for a first mixed media project :P At this point the bottle is not really doing what I want,  so maybe ill just make her a card :)

This digi is by Maurie Maning and you can find it at her shop here Mo's Digital Pencil
I used a lot of colors on this cutie to get a magical pink purple effect.
