I created this mixed media canvas for the 7 Dots Studio August Challenge. This month’s theme is “Favourite Artist” and I created a mixed media collage project about one of my favorite artists: Frida Kahlo. I call this piece Ode to Frida Kahlo and I used a gel transfer technique for her face. Then I used rust and patina paste to alter it. I also used the Hazy Days collection for the background.
Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created it.
I’ve always admired her courage as an independent woman who despite her physical and emotional pain she was able to succeed as an artist in a male dominant society.
