Mixed Media Madness with Genea and her Man

Hello beautiful souls,

It felt great to get back in the studio, not only for myself, but for my MMM (Mixed-Media Man) as well. There is something really great about getting to create with your love. We decided for our one year anniversary we would have a "One year ARTiversary" and go create in the studio together. I had a nice primed piece of fiberboard waiting for some paints and I got to work with my water colors.

 

I received the 12x12 Flower of Life sacred geometry stencil in this month's box and I couldn't wait to give it a test drive!

I really love this nice large size for this 12x12 piece. I got some felt tipped paint markers to try out on this fiberboard since it shreds up my Molotow markers, and the paint pens were a hit! They were just perfect for this size stencil and art piece.

We decided to do some live feed streaming from the liveme app which was pretty cool. At one point I had 43 people watching me create!

If you look closely in this photo you can see me taking a photo of Christian working and see me in the video screen on my phone. Christian tried recording from his phone on his end of the table too, but for some reason his recording was 3 columns with lines through it. So weird. I am kinda bummed too because I bet it was cool to see things from each of our perspectives as we worked at the same time. Christian was rockin out the chakra pocket stencils and the square rose sacred geometry 6x6 stencils for his piece.

I just love how Christian's pieces go through so many changes while he works. He does this awesome bumpy paint technique you can see in the square rose photo. I love how he clustered the little chakras as well. Next Christian did some paint layers on top of the inked chakra stencils.

He decided to take it a step further and even do some cut outs!

A little pro tip for making stencil cuts in your canvas is to put the stencil on the backside, trace the image in pencil, and then use an exacto knife to cut it out.

I did some inks on my piece after I did the sacred geometry layer and used the heart chakra stencil.

Christian wanted to do some painted pieces to layer under the chakra cut outs and asked me how I did my watercolor technique. I think it's cute he meshed our styles for this part. The results were pretty amazing!

You can see the hemp flower design peeking out from inside the solar plexus stencil. Here is his piece so far. I can't wait to see how much it continues to change as he continues creating!

So you will just have to stop back next week to see his finished piece and mine as well. I had to stop taking photos of my piece as I got to use the NEW super *secret* stencils that will be hitting the shelves in January! So stay tuned for some more awesome artiness! Until then...

Love, light, and art,

Genea
