Default MIX84 - Left is Right! (9/5/2014)

Challenge Title: Left is Right
Hostess: dini (Dina K)
Keyword: MIX84
VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Yay, a new Mix-Ability challenge!! We hope you're having fun with these!

Each time we post a new challenge, it makes me push myself just a little bit more in my art. I'm going to push you this week too... don't get mad!

For this week's challenge, I want you to add some doodling to your project with your non-dominant hand.

Before you hyperventilate, I assure you that there's a reason! I read an article recently where the author talks about using the non-dominant hand "to silence our inner critic" - in her exercise she sketched images with her left hand, and found that instead of drawing from memory she was really forced to look at the actual objects she was drawing. That helped her to really see the object, and let go of her usually 'programmed' process. It's an interesting concept!


You can draw an image if you want.

Doodle a border or pattern, or add some details to a watery reflection.


Use a glaze pen or a gel pen if you're afraid of a dark outline.

I am a recovering perfectionist, and I loved the looseness that I was able to achieve with my right hand on the lines I added to the flower petals in the samples below. Here's one:



Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from. If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX84) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!

Ack!!!! Dina, you've got to be kidding. I hyperventilate when I see a challenge asking me to doodle with my dominant hand, even. I'll have to see if I have something suitable for your stencil reflection to help me in to this challenge, LOL. Then I think I'll need to cut my own stencil...why do I have to work today!!!
I'll practice some non-dominant doodling in work . Thanks for an interesting challenge, Dina.

This was so much fun! Thank you, Dina. I wasn't sure about my ability, but after a little practice to see what I could do it was fun and relaxing.

Here's my card: MIX84: I'm THAT Girl

Oh, LOOK! The hives are back.

It really isn't! I used a die to deboss the outline and that panel is a single layer.

I was hoping it was a stamp . I don't yet have a good any poinsettia stamp yet because I've been making my dies earn their keep for the last couple of years, but it's getting to be time to add one to my collection.

Here's my rather pathetic attempt. It was so hard to not use my right hand. And even harder to get a good flow of ink. I should have used one of my new Pitt pens, but then I'd have had to come up with a whole different card design predicated on dominant black doodling instead of discreet white.

Heart F4A237, MIX84 Bike with Apples

Dini- your challenge using my "off hand" as my DS calls it- was just what I needed for my apple challenge card today (F4A237). Used Flourishes' Bike Ride for my images, and a red sharpie for my apples. Finished with some ribbons, and a yellow punched border scrappy. Here's Bike with Apples

Here's another one from me. I put on some classical music (because my speech radio stream was broken, LOL), and it sure helped!

Hi all! I do not own stamps, so I traced my image onto vellum and used pointillism to render it. I used Prisma color markers and oil pastels, here is my card.
