November Guest Designer ~ Marina Simon

Now over to Marina 

 Hello!  My name is Marina Simon and I am very honored to participate as a guest designer in Mixed Media Academy challenge. I want to share with you my project inspired by this month's mood board whose theme is "mind over matter" and the importance of mental health, peace and spiritual growth for integral well-being. 

 As a basis for my work, I used a palette and brushes, with this I wanted to represent art as a space where sometimes I can find my moments of peace.

 Next I will tell you the step by step of my work:

   I started using stencils with modeling paste to create various designs on the palette, then I placed a central mandala and everything around it made the doodle, a mandatory element of the month, with embossing techniques.

 I continued putting together the design of my work placing different pieces of mdf, plaster moldings, pearls, some pieces of metal and wires to finally cover everything with a base of black gesso.  Then I color it with acrylic paints, waxes and glitter and finally place the photograph.

  If you want to see more of my work, you can find me on my Facebook And Instagram. I hope you like my project and it inspires you to create!
