Mixed Media To Abstract

Mixed media is so much fun for me. I don't have to worry about perfection and staying within the lines, I can sling paint however and wherever I want too! Some of my favorite things to use for my base when creating mixed media art pieces are mat board, cardboard, mixed media paper, and wood. I do use traditional back stapled canvas on occasion but for me I find it to be too bouncy, however, I do like the canvas panels as they are more rigid.

This example was created using mixed media paper. Once the piece was completed I scanned the art into my photoshop program, saved the original digital version and then started to play with filters. This is the end result, an abstract created from the original mixed media artwork. Now I have a completely new piece of work to add to my product line. I can also take this original digital image created from the work above and create another new piece and then repeat over and over.
