So, I have a fair coming up this Sunday which I am pretty excited about. It is my first year attending. It is Sandy Hill’s One & Only Arts & Crafts Fair which is at the Sandy Hill Community Centre from 10am to 4pm. Should be a lot of fun and there is a free buffet. Free food, how can you go wrong?
Due to this fair, I thought I should whip up some little darlings for people to purchase and give to loved ones over the holidays (without breaking the bank). I have been feeling pretty inspired this week so whip up, I did!! Here are some butterfly cuties.
Here are some houses I was inspired to do from my Quebec City post.
Creating the manly piece last week made me realize that I don’t have very many masculine paintings, so it inspired me to create more man mixed media pieces. I thought, guys like to fish right? Why not give them something cooler and much more esthetically pleasing than a stuffed fish to hang on the wall…
I think I might do more of those, I had a blast making them.
The last piece I am going to share is a fun little one. First, I wanted to remind you all that mixed media does not have to be expensive and really lends itself well to reusing/recycling. I wanted to create a tree with texture so I took some shredded red paper and just applied it with a generous amount of medium. The paper obviously isn’t the right colour.
So I just painted over it. I also used left over brown bits of paper to create the trunk.
I then had some pink trim which wasn’t the right colour.
I just painted over it as well and grunged it up a little with a brown Faber Castell Pitt Pen.
Now, the final piece. I like the contradiction of the stuffy looking business man taking flight courtesy of his umbrella and he really seems to be enjoying it, going with the flow.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend planned. Not only do I have a fair, I get to hike in the Gatineau Park and check out a new coffee shop I have been wanting to see. All with my girlfriends, to celebrate a birthday, YEY!!
