Mixed Media Moon Chime

Today I’ve created a Mixed Media home decor piece inspired by two challenges. I was invited by Mixed Media Academy to guest design for their August Challenge. The challenge is to create something inspired by the colour palette and a Zodiac Sign.

I combined this with the Nomadic Soul Diaries August Challenge.

NSD August

Here’s my project: Inspired by MMA- The colour palette works for me very well because these are my go-to colours. I’ve used a crescent moon idea and created my interpretation of the universe. I believe my purpose is to heal, inspire and spread light. The Virgo Symbol is of a maiden carrying s shaft of wheat. In my interpretation, I’ve used it as a fairy carrying this light to illuminate the world. I’ve also depicted the universe from the Moon’s perspective, which means space seems white and the moon and stars have the colour:)! This to me is a metaphorical representation of how others perspective and point of view is so important for me. The phrases I’ve used are lines from a poem that I’ve written and talked about this idea. 

NSD- I’ve created a home decor hanging, used crystals and as for mosaic I’ve interpreted it as assorted patterns that make a whole and used a stencil and mandala to represent it.

Red is not an easy colour to use, but with some mood board challenges this month, it has been exciting to use it in multiple creations in different ways.

Here’s a mixed media layout using 7 Dots Studio Nothern Lights Collection. We’ve used Lindy’s Sprays Rizzo Rowdy Red, Guten Tag Teal and embossing powder Rizzo Rowdy Red.
