Finnabair & Friends - Open Studio Challenge

Hello - It's been months since I have scrapped or done anything creative besides Kindergarten projects with my son (and I wasn't even feeling those). So sad. I wanted to do something creative so I decided to participate in a Finnabair challenge. I love (LOVE) her work. She is a true unique artist. But I am always too scared and overthink mixed-media so I never tried her style before. 

The challenge is to take some background technique inspiration from the Creative Team and utilize it in your project. I did a canvas inspired by the oh so talented Rebecca Morris. I love the textures and colors in her work. Really wanted to try some cobalt blue! She absolutely rocks that color. I used drywall tape and art basics gesso and modeling paste from her background tutorial. I then sprayed with some Prima Color Blooms and Ranger Distressed Spray Stain. 

I am certainly no expert but I had fun experimenting and playing...and that is the point, right?! I just need to turn my brain off a bit:-). I will definitely be doing some more MM projects!!

Thanks for looking!!
