Special Guest Spotlight on IRIS PEREZ December 2022

 Hello everyone!

This month, we are very pleased to welcome Iris Perez, who was one of our September
 2022 winners

We hope you enjoy her take on our December Main Challenge and do please visit her social links which are listed below in her Artist Bio.

Artist Bio 

My name is Iris, I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have been making different types of crafts for more than 25 years and in the last few years, I have focused on the mixed media associated with scrapbooking. Although I like intervened or recycled objects a lot, I have a weakness for paper and I really like it as a support when creating.

Q & A with Iris

How long have you been art journalling?

I have been writing different art journals for several years.

What is your favorite supply or product?

My favorite art supplies are pigments, I see infinite possibilities in them.

Are you inspired by a particular artist or artists, if so who?

I like a lot of styles that are too contrasting. Sometimes inspiration just comes out of nowhere itself.

What is your favourite colour palette to use?

I don't have one, I'm always changing.

In my art journal, I have always wanted to try...? 

EVERYTHING! I see potential in unusual materials sometimes.

And finally, why do you enter art challenges?

Because I like to participate and promote this wonderful hobby. I know that I can touch at least one soul.

Iris's Interpretation of our December Main Challenge

Iris says:  For this art journal page, I used pigments and inks. Once dry, with a stencil, I applied embossing ink and did the same hot with shiny powders.

Then, I used the same stencil to apply gesso irregularly, I also spread it with a spatula generating textures and light in different parts of the project.

I used an image from a collage book that inspired me for the sentiment with the word sparkle.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful journal spread with us Iris!  We hope Iris's beautiful work inspires you to enter the December challenge!

Here's a reminder of our current Main Challenge:
