This is how I was inspired by the word "bliss" and of course "gesso" is such a basic when working with mixed media.
My "bliss" is to surround myself with as much mixed media as I can find, play with it and see where it leads me. I feel like my head is so wired up to colour, texture and pattern, that once all the cogs and nuts and bolts start working I become totally absorbed and lost in my own creative world.
Here's a little bit of info about my blog and how I chose the name. Apart from the obvious meanings of the words "Bliss" and "Gesso", I have a love of Hip Hop music, and in particular an Australian band called BLISS N ESO, so I just put the two together.
Language warning, but their intent is always good.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope you can join in the "bliss and gesso" challenge at More Than Words.

The other things that were fun to play with were Finnabair's new Rusted Mechanicals, such as the beautiful Rusted Pocket Watch and the "Create Magic" Rustic Washer. Also the amazing Rust Effect Paste.........turn any embellishment, no matter what it's made of, instantly rusty !
This particular project, more than any other, says a lot about me.
Details of how this assemblage was made are HERE on the Finnabair blog as well as a full list of products used.

This is a wooden Photo Block ( of my girl ) collaged with Prima Patterned Paper and then extra dimension added with fabric that has been crumpled into folds using the new art Extravagance Sculpture Medium.
Strips of fabric, coated in Clear Sculpture Medium and then pushed into folds and gathers ( no need to get out your sewing machine ) You can fold, bend, scrunch, mould, pleat or sculpt fabric any way you want after coating it with this medium: it will dry and hold its shape perfectly.
Thanks for visiting today. Happy creating.
