The theme for the next Mixed Media Monday is 'Numbers'.
My take on numbers is '31' which is my age! I guess this piece is about who I am at 31 and my changing role. I really enjoyed working on this one as I tried so many new things. I also learnt what works and what might not. It definitly looks better in real life, I just couldn't seem to get the brightness of the colours in the scan but I'm happy with it. I have posted the scanned image as well as an image that I have played around with on the computer. I wasn't planning on doing anything digital but the scanned image hasn't come up as well as I would have liked. Although I realise now why. The materials I used for 'Numbers' are: acrylic paint, the toilet paper technique that I used before, which is basically gluing tissue paper then painting over it and you are left with quite a textured effect. That is what I have done for the numbers. I used wood, glittery string. colour pencils, material for her dress and also text. I realised though that the scanning is a problem now because of some of the materials I can't lay it perfectly flat so some of it ie the text in the background is out of focus. Bit of a bummer but I guess it's all in the learning process.
