Hi everyone! I have finally finished making a tutorial for how to make your own elephant with mixed media art techniques. A long name, I know.
This is my first ever blog!!!!! Yep! It’s all new, so I’m still learning but I need to share my mixed media art techniques with you. I have a unique style and I know so many of you love watching me make my mixed media art. So, what better way to share with you than to create this blog to show you how I make this beautiful elephant enabling you to then make your own!!!! How good is that…….
So, let’s get on with it….
Wait for the ink to dry before rubbing the pencil lines out with a rubber
Spread all your decorations, pens and glue around you so that they are within reach
You will also need a scrap bit of very thin card to put your glue on, a toothpick, to help you apply glue to tricky small decorations and a newspaper to put under your art when using glitter.
You are now ready to decorate!!!! Yay!
Start with the flower on the back of the elephant. This forms a good base to work from. You can either follow me step by step in the videos, or you can go freestyle, follow your own flow and fill it in however you want to.
Use small spots of glue at a time which makes it easier to control and ensurea that it doesn’t go everywhere
Use newspaper to collect your glitter after sprinkling to make it easier to control
Transfer your glitter into larger pots or containers making it easier to add the unused glitter back into after sprinkling
Use a blusher brush to gently brush the areas decorated with glitter to remove any excess glitter
Leave the glittered parts to dry out thoroughly before continuing
I love making this mixed media art elephant. She always looks slightly different, but I love her every time. She has such a playful and happy nature and just makes me smile. I hope you enjoy making her as much as I do. Happy making!!!
