Mixed Media Art by Janet
This is Janet from Try it - Like it - Create it, and I am sharing a tutorial for making mixed media art using Rinea foiled paper.
Creating art with mixed media can often feel like play. The idea is to take a variety of different mediums and colors and balance them on the page. Layer by layer, the work evolves. The various elements can create movement, or you can have a distinctive focal point, just like this work does. The gold Rinea Foiled Paper butterfly at the top left of the piece is what the focal point is on my piece.
As mentioned above, the work is built in layers, and the following photos will show each step of the process.
