Creative Gym – Exercise #5

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Life and work somehow got in the way… I’ve gone up in time at work, and it’s a challenge to adjust to have less time to create.

I decided to join the Mixed Media Place’s Creative Gym this month and their exercise #5. The rules for this one is: combine black backround + all the colors of the rainbow.

My first try was a black background and layering loads of colours with different stencils… It didn’t work for me, so paint over with fresh black acrylic and start over. This gave me a more textured surface to work on, and that’s always a plus, right?

So, here’s my entry. I used a photo of my son from last year, he’s on his way to a party and having his smart outfit, and crooked smile, on. He loves orange, and pretty much all bright colours. I’ve used a couple of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, sequines, Finnabair’s beads, and different decorative elements as cutouts and paperclips. The golden stars I just cutout from gold foil paper.











Really like how this exercise turned out. Hope you like it too. 🙂

  1. Hi there,
    I’m hopping over here from the Mixed Media Place Challenge, having participated in it myself, I wanted to see what everyone else did. This is like a party on a page! I love the energy it conveys. My favorite aspect is the colorful texture of all those lovely dots, some kissed with just a hint of a different color from the splatters.

    May your muse shine brightly!

    1. Thanks Riikka! Love creating this, it was a bit outside my comfort zone and had to redo the back ground.
      Somehow your answer got stuck in the spam filter… Have had some big problem with spam, but hopefully that works now. 🙂
