Susan's Birthday — mixed media painting with acrylics and collage
These sample mixed media paintings — Dear Santa and Me and My Dad — are 8” x 10”, the size of canvas you’ll be working on. Their images were printed out on 8.5” x 11” paper with a laser printer.
Would you like to create your paintings using photographs of your family and friends, at Susan’s Napa Girlfriend 50th Birthday event?
If so, bring them in laser copy format — no original photographs, and no inkjet prints (the colors run).
You can bring black and white or color copies, whichever you prefer.
Size them to fit onto an 8” x 10” canvas.
If you have any sayings, quotations, poems, or other items you’d like to include, bring those, too — also printed as a laser copy. (You might want to try printing the text in different sizes, too, to have more options as to which size works best in the painting.)
I will also bring photos of my own and images from my collection of vintage photographs, which you are welcome to use, in addition to plenty of decorative papers, paints, and the other supplies I'll provide.
This 8" x 10" painting uses a painted border, a vintage photograph, and an laser printed image of old music..
