For Leeann mixed media is made up of so many amazing layers using so many techniques at the same time. One technique that Leeann shares with you from this piece is Resist! Which when you think about it, there are so many ways in which you can use this technique. Leeann shares an old favorite tie dying using colored dye sprays on fabric.
As you can see the first part of this artsy piece is all about making up that first layer. From there we continue to build each of the layers up using an assortment of paint, printed tissue paper, decoupage mediums. To help create texture an assortment of sponges, stippling brushes, bubble wrap and masks are used also in a layering type fashion. The finishing details are using black and white pens to highlight images and words along with using rub-ons very randomly.
