Mixed Media – Tenderly Rouge

This was a bit complicated for me as I assembled photos to make a video and then I wanted to add sound but my files were incompatible. I was happy to find an online tool that enabled me to put it together, all very amateur on my part, of course. 🙂

Hopefully I will have some photos to upload soon of my seedlings which have grown and are ready to bloom.

Some Things Need Fixed

It started with a sachet from a pastry shop.  The motif caught my eye, but the truth of the matter was “not quite right”.  While one can often find pleasure in eating good food, it is not really an inexhaustible source of Happiness.

I wondered if I could find the letters for the word love (amour) in “gourmandise” since that is the true source of real happiness.  Yes, I did.  Then I filled the holes with hearts.  I also had a bit of a donut box I brought back from the States; “share jelly donuts” had tickled me right away.  This orange must be an international choice of colour for gourmandise.

 

This reminds me of the work to be done on oneself, changing so as to be loving and thus transforming the world.  I modified the word “compostable” to read” réalisable” because it is entirely possible.

A touch of Le Rustique, an orange one that comes with Muenster cheese.  Hmmm, Muenster with jelly donuts, how would that be?

I have been having fun with mixed media lately, often inspired by LorriMarie Jenkins.

A Foray into Scrapbooking

My interest in mixed media led me to take a workshop in scrapbooking.  It was prepared by Manuéla – https://hazartblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/12/en-mars-a-latelier-2/

I knew I did not want to use photos so I cut some watercolour paper to the prescribed sizes.  We didn’t get that far.  This is what I brought home:

These were made with stamps:

The main lesson point for the evening was the use of watercolour.  We used waterproof black ink for the stamps and then painted them with watercolours.  The mandala was made with two embossing products, white on white, and then painted.

These are the materials I had left:

Plenty for making some cards which were also included in the lesson plan.

After thinking over the colours and motifs, I decided ink drawings of mushrooms would go well.

Additional materials:

…and also some black paper.  One of the reference photos is my own and the other two were taken by a good friend who went out into her garden especially for this project. ❤
