Valentine’s day mixed media project using recycled packaging.

This is a Valentine’s day inspired mixed media project using recycled packaging. I used left over packaging, I layered them with gesso, white lace, and trim. I also used a stencil to add texture. I used the Jane Davenport mermaid markers, Tombow markers, and I layered the colors to get a vibrant effect. The colors came out much brighter than I wanted, so I was able to tone it down using some white and light pink watercolors. I also used some Lindy’s sprays to tone down the very bright pink color.

The other two projects are also recycled packaging, and I used acrylic paints and I layered all three with flowers and embellishments! I finished off the last 2 with Lemon color liquid pearls in the corners to bring the piece to life. This is a fun way to use mixed media and layer different mediums to get a bright and cheery effect!

My Universe is empty.

See here's the thing....

This term comes from a very funny lady who is a member of an improv group that I belong to called “Consenting Adults”.  We perform in theatres in and around Los Angeles.  The term has been used when one draws a blank and can’t think of anything to say or do. You see, performing in improv and being good at it, you must have a really good imagination. To create the character and the scene, to make it come alive, be interesting and believable.  I also think one should have an imagination when writing and I’ve had writers block for days now.  Yes my universe is empty.  I’ve got nothing only bored  little crickets.

To be able to move someone and make them laugh, or entertain them is one of the greatest joys an artist or performer can have. Oh and it’s really fun when I get up in front an audience and can’t think of anything to say hahaha!  Trust me it’s happened. I’m not proud of it,  but it is what it is.  I think of  ideas to myself, “no not that one, “no, don’t like that one”. “Nope, not that one either” and it just goes on until one of my cast members saves me.  Then there are other times when I can think of tons of stuff to say.  I guess writing is the same way.

I recently made a Facebook post on not having anything to write about. Then one of my Facebook friends gave me some of his ideas. Which included but not limited to, a carrot that knows karate, speaks german and is recruited by an army of bumblebees to infiltrate the pentagon. There were some other cute funny little things too, but my guess is that they’ve all been done before.  So I will stick with my empty universe for now and the crickets.  Oh crap (listening) I think the crickets just left.  Ah man!*
