|August 29, 2014||Posted by Robin under Mixed Media, Technique of the Week|
Iris is a wonderful Mixed Media artist that shares many wonderful techniques on her You Tube channel. I found Iris by seeing some of her videos on Facebook..and quickly looked up some of her other videos. She has a gift for sharing new and unique ideas and techniques and I always walk away inspired.
My name is Iris, I am a London-based mixed media artist. I live in the heart of London with my beautiful family (husband, 2 boys & 1 cat).
I am passionate about mixed media art, art journaling and inspiring people to be free to create the way they are meant to create and shine the way they are meant to shine! Self-actualisation & (female) empowerment through art is something very close to my heart and I can talk about it for hours!
My art includes heavily textured backgrounds, bright colours, shabby & grungy elements, uplifting or inspiring phrases, faces & cute girls. (this is always changing as I discover new and exciting techniques and ways of pushing my style forward!)

#1 Open Corel PSP
In upper right hand corner, go to File and open..
open a file that is stored on your computer in one of the folders that holds your art or designs
Open a creation of your choice..I opened this pink and blue background design..
Then open another document that you would like to layer onto the first one..I chose this flower design I had created a while ago…dont forget your old designs will be turned into new creations over and over again
To layer the two..you right click at the top where the pointer is..(on the one that goes on the top)..hit copy…and then go to the other one and right click in the top and hit paste/paste as transparent section
now you have one layered on top of another..now you can use the “pick” tool, second from top..click on it and then click on “pick”…and this will make mover bars around your top image so you can resize it to cover the whole bottom image.
…so just play around with layers..have fun…save each piece and experiment..im here for any questions..just comment or email me….Have fun..!..until the next lesson..practice, practice practice..this seems long but when you know each step, it takes only seconds to change..

Essence…A digital collage
This was created with 2 watercolor pieces of artwork..this one for the base
and this one which was used for the flowers
..I cut out the flowers and pasted them on the base digitally and played around with the layering tool using light and dark, difference and color saturation..I erased a little of the rough edges while it was still in layer mode..so it would just erase the flower edges and not the background..then I went into the effects mode and played with the distortion tool..displacement in particular and softened the edges more..after I had the image in the composition that I liked I played with color effects..and here are some of my favorite choices
