Wanderlust 2017 - Week 2

It's week 2 of my Wanderlust adventure. 
This weeks instructor was the insanely talented Mary Wangerin.
Check out her blog The Turquoise Paintbrush for lots of mixed media inspiration

I created my mixed media layout on a 12x12 sheet of chipboard & taking inspiration from a quote I found ~ "Advice from a Tree: Stand tall & Proud, Sink Your Roots Deep Into The Earth, Drink Plenty Of Water, Go Out On A Limb, Be Content With Your Natural Beauty, Remember Your Roots, Enjoy The View"

I really enjoyed building up layers of paint, gesso, paper scraps, stamping & stenciling.

I just love all the layers of paint.

I created my focal point with a stencil, some doodling & stamping. 
Don't look to close or you'll see my typo. Oops. 

Here is my finished mixed media project.


Products Used:

Acrylic Paint
Distress Paint
Dylusions Paint
Gesso
Stencils
Paper Scraps

  1. A beautiful project Julia, loving the colours and stencilling, you make me wish I had joined in this year, but I have not finished last year yet! I have not heard that quote before, certainly one to remember... Anne xx
