I created the layout by cutting my paper into a puffy cloud shape. Most of what is on my project are Disney characters because they are all fantasy. I also included Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy because they are all figures that are not real. I put down tissue paper and added water over it to transfer the color to my paper so that it is a nice background. Then I took white tissue paper that had sparkles in it and I put that over the entire paper using a gel medium. I put my pictures down and then added wall paper, glitter, water colors and lots of other materials to it.
The risk I took for this project was that I completely changed my layout from what I originally thought I wanted to do. I just started randomly adding layers and I am happy with how the layout looks. My favorite part on the piece is the wizard in the bottom right who is shooting magic (yarn) out of his wand. I took a risk adding the yarn because I had a really hard time getting it to stick and look good on the mini lesson we did.
While adding to my piece I asked people at my table where there were open spots and if I needed to add any more layers.
This is my least favorite project that I have done. I loved using mixed media, but I don't like how my final turned out. I liked what I made in my sketch book (below) so much more because I think it flows better and has more of a message.
