ArtsyTrio YouTube Video Hop – Moodboard #4

Once again I’m taking part in our fourth ArtsyTrio YouTube Video hop with Gina Ahrens & Bea Grob. This month it’s my turn once again to curate the moodboard for us all to take inspiration from and to create an art or craft project of your choosing.

I have chosen not to create a 2D art journal page for this challenge, but to go three dimensional with an altered 6″ paint brush and you can watch my full start to finish process over on my YouTube channel by clicking the link below. You can find clickable links to both Gina’s & Bea’s 4th Moodboard creations in the description area below the video on my YouTube channel.

Machine Works – 6″x12″ Mixed Media Canvas

Today I’m in the mood to play with some resin pieces and create a 6″x12″ mixed media canvas. I’ve never used the resin cast pieces from the Prima “Insecta” mould from designer Finnabair before in a project, so I was interested to see how they would turn out! I was pleasantly suprised!

Day 7 – 7 Days of Halloween 2021 – “Shades of Age”

In today’s 7 Days of Halloween video, I’m creating a mixed media 3D canvas, which is something I’ve not done for a long time. So using some Halloweenish poly resin items I’ve cast recently, using some Finnabair silicone moulds from Prima Marketing, plus a few silicone moulds I’ve made myself in the past I set to work on a box edged 10″ x 10″ canvas. Using Salvaged Patina Distress paint from Tim Holtz and Black Gesso & Brass Monkey metallic paint from IndigoBlu.
