The music of my artistic heart is mixed media. Here’s a diy post to show you how to make a mixed media piece using plaster cloth, pressed flowers, and rice paper.
Texture a canvas with gesso and let dry. Then paint with soft pink and yellow ochre acrylic paints. Cut hearts out of plaster cloth and arrange on the dry canvas.
Dip each heart into water and then smooth onto the canvas.
Lightly sponge acrylic paint over the hearts. Ink the words onto a piece of rice paper and antique using Tim Holtz inks. Use gel medium to attach the words to the canvas.
Add ink and paint accents. I created the musical note stamp by carving the note into a wine cork.
