My schedule has been pretty packed this week, so it was nice to have relatively short art projects to commit to each day. I got my creative out and I got to practice some mixed media background techniques. While fairly simple to create, each piece is a mini work of art on its own and I think they come together quite nicely as framed wall art. It's great to have a mini project option when I'm short on time. I can just make random mixed media letter art and piece them together to make words as I go.
Not sure if it's the writer in me or my ongoing obsession with typography in design (most likely both), but I'm finding that blending mixed media with text is a great expressive outlet for me. I'm think it's becoming my signature style- a very happy discovery! There will surely be more word art where this came from (maybe in my future Etsy shop?!!)
What's YOUR favorite word?
