How about some mixed media art…







A member of one of my art groups posted some items similar to these two photos (sorry about the reflections).  I can’t remember which group it was in so I’m sorry for not giving you credit for the idea.  I made these two for my family.  One is for my sister-in-law who is a retired nurse and the other is for my son and his fiancé who will be getting married in a couple of weeks.  I thought it would be something cute for them to hang somewhere in their home.  These both have an alcohol ink on Yupo paper background.

I just started using Yupo paper with my inks and I love it.  The ink just moves so well and the finish is just really soft and elegant.  I had been using photo paper but finally broke down and ordered a small 5×7 pad of Yupo.  Yupo paper is synthetic paper; more like a plastic feel.  It’s very expensive but I can see that it’s worth the extra money.

I just purchased a new pad of 9×12 in Yupo paper at Blick’s.  I’ll use it wisely so I don’t waste the paper but I’m going to have to try some landscapes on these. Wish me luck.  I’ll post them if they turn out nice.

If you are interested in making these for graduation, or other special occasion gifts, let me know.  The writing in both of these were done on my Cricut machine.  It makes it more special if they are personalized.
