For this project, I felt inspired to work small.
I love working small for multiple reasons, one of them, the ability to enjoy the process and try multiple tools and mediums with no other expectation other than exploring and playing.
For years, I had very limited supplies to work with, therefore, when I started to explore the mixed media world I was a bit reluctant because I felt I would have to waste too many supplies in my learning process, and at that time I didn’t have many resources. However, I discovered soon enough that working with what you have is a very valid way of learning any new craft- and working small is the best way to have fun and explore while achieving a faster outcome when you need that “accomplishment” feeling in the beginning.
With this video, I am showing you my creative process in achieving color vibrancy, magical textures, and having a playful time, with a moderate amount of supplies, and using one of my favorite surfaces: tags!
No waste! (If that’s something you care about. lol)
As you may have seen in my previous videos for this creative team, one of my goals is always to showcase the versatility of Shawn’s line of stencils. Though I will be using this mini book for personal journaling and probably will end up adding more ephemera elements to it, for the purpose of this video, I will focus on the creative process and the use of Shawn’s stencils.
I hope you enjoy the process and that it’s inspirational for you!
