Firstly I must say how happy, honoured and grateful I am for continuing my journey with Finnabair Creative Finn. This is a dream team and being here is such a privilage for me.
I am absolutely over the moon that I can meet you all here in the next months and share my love for mixed media.
Do you know what Assemblage is ?
Today I would like to show you my mixed media assemblage piece.
Assemblage is an artistic form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. It is similar to collage, a two-dimensional medium. It is part of the visual arts, it typically uses found objects, but is not limited to these materials.
This piece was in my head for a long time. I had kept this old broken telly part and waited for an inspiration to come.
I could see my finished project right away but... it kept on changing while I was creating.
It's special piece... two hearts... connected by wire like myself and my daughter Emily... (you can see her small hand on the video for split second :)
As you can see main telly part was left uncoloured. In my first vision I hoped to blend in all the elements and cover it with some colour. At the end I left the original green and decided to find some coordinating shades and match small findings to my main green colour.
I added many found objects and craft embellishments like metal pieces, chipboards and resin elements.
To colour my make I used new colours of Mica Powders from Finnabair and gel medium.
By mixing gel medium and mica powders you will get a great shiny paint.
As you can see all coloured elements are having this fantastic shimmery shine.
I hope you will enjoy the video!
Love, Marta xx
