Mixed-media shadow box
My challenge for you to consider today is this: You say you create mixed-media art, but what media are you mixing?
Have you gotten in a rust rut (if it has rust it makes the cut). Are you using the same paints, in the same color palette?
I was just watching the new Quilting Arts TV Series 700 (episode 711 to be exact) and I was blown away by the project demonstrated by Valori Wells. Take a look at the media that Valori chooses to mix, you may be inspired to add to your own list!
What other media have you considered using in your art? Last night I took a free seminar on mold making at the local arts school. I’ve also tried glass blowing and even blacksmithing. Yes, I’m still attracted to rusty items, but I find my work continues to grow and excite me if I am open to trying new media.
Let us know what unusual media you’ve used here in the comments section, and come back and check to see what others use. It may just inspire your next piece.
