Spotlight on Layering and Mixed Media Elements with Jan Bintz

Jan says her favorite technique is layering with mixed media.  Her first piece began with black gesso, texture paste, and paint.  Then she added embellishments to fit the subject of her canvas, her Granddaughter.  I think you will agree that she finished it off beautifully.

 
    

On her next piece she used Kaisercraft papers; and you see a boarder mix of textures.  The contrast between the metal and fabric flowers is a great look and adds to the dramatic effect.  Look closely and you will notice the subtle use of color to enhance the background flowers.   Jan’s projects show a lot of imagination and creativity, for more inspiration check out her store Pinterest board, and look for her projects hanging in the store.
