Mixed Media SHE Art = FUN!

I have been wanting to do a piece of SHE art for a while. (I have a board full of them on Pinterest.) I was teaching a mixed media collage workshop this week, so on Sunday afternoon, I created this piece as my sample.  It was so much fun!

Drawing and cutting out things that I love and adding them into the piece was a fun process.  I used my Golden gels as “glue” and even played a bit with symbolism in the piece.  It is interesting how you can add little items, almost hidden in the piece as little surprises.  Prints of my paintings I had made for jewelry pieces were just perfect for the collage.   Just as I was about done, I noticed the easel seemed too clean for my studio (HA!), so I added all the little paint spots.

The class went great and I had a full house. (Yippee!)  I am going to make some of these for my girlfriends as gifts, too.  I love all the details and how you can make them personal or themed.  How fun is that!

Have you ever created one?    If so, add a link in my comments.  I’d love to see it.

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
