LAYERS OF LIGHT - MIXED MEDIA ART CLASS
Welcome to this bonus project!
Back in 2017, I was invited to create a lesson inspired by Layers of Light for an online art retreat. I prepared a sweet, relaxing and slightly meditative project where the process is simple and meaningful. “Rise” is all about remembering our wings, embracing self-love and soaring towards the light!
I created this painting just for me, to hang it in my home as a daily reminder of my wings. I now invite you to create yours!
* NB: captions for this project will soon be available. Thank you for your patience!
Introduction & supplies
Take a moment to close your eyes, breathe and open up to your own magic… can you feel your wings?
2. From shadow to light
Starting with journaling, then collage and paint, let’s work our way up towards the light, one layer at a time.
3. welcoming love and joy
It’s time to invite color! The wings I chose led me to plenty of pink and I could really feel a sweet, loving energy radiating from the painting as it came to life.
4. Wings & Finishing touches
It’s time to add your wings and integrate them into the painting with some fun and lovely finishing touches!
And here is the finished painting!
I hope you have enjoyed this journey and that it has inspired you to open your wings and your heart.
