The East Wind New Release ~ The East Wind Witchery
Hi everyone. Unky at The East Wind releases a new image every Tuesday and Friday. The new image for today is called The East Wind Witchery and she has the most amazing hair! Love the hat, too, ...like one of those fascinators. I was able to play along today creating a mixed media project with this beauty.
I coloured her with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and cut her out along the rectangle of the image design except in the top left corner where I fussy cut next to her hair. She was then matted in black.
The background began as a rectangle of mixed media paper which I spritzed with Lark ink from Art Anthology as well as Creme de Rouge Tattered Angels spray with mica. Platinum ink was pounced through a circle stencil to create a random pattern once the sprays were dry. Black gesso was watered down slightly and added in lines with a gift card.
The image and the computer generated sentiment, also matted in black, were layered over gray burlap remnants. Gray dotty washi tape was adhered to the edges in three places and topped with metal heart buttons. These pieces were outlined with a black pen. A punched black photo corner was added to the top left corner for balance as well as adding a strong pop of contrast. A die cut border was added under the image for the same reason as well as drawing extra attention to the image. To finish, black Big Brush pen was used to edge the outsides of the background before it was matted with black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by today. To see other wonderful creations by our DT members featuring this fabulous new release, please pop by The East Wind Facebook group where they will be added throughout the day. We would love to see what you create with her, too.
Life is good; so is art.
