Hey Creatives! Inktoberfest Yay! Rita Barakat here as a special guest for Inktoberfest for The Hedgehog Hollow!

All month long there is a new coupon for Tonic Studios and today it’s for Nuvo Mica Mists! I have created not one but two Mixed Media projects for you today…oh and did I mention I did a video too? Read on!

When I was asked to do a project for Inktoberfest I was super excited, I have been wanting to do something for Inktober but I couldn’t bring myself to do a project each day, even if it is a simple drawing with ink. But I could do a post for Inktober! So much fun using these Nuvo MicaMists for these project!

When you watch the video below you will see my process, my original idea was not a theme on beauty or believing in yourself. They evolved as I created the pieces. This theme seems to be ongoing in my projects.

Have you ever done a page and didn’t do the opposite page until much later? The first pic in this post is one from my art journal, I did the page on the right but for whatever reason, I didn’t have any thoughts for the page on the left until today. The page already had dried texture paste on it when I started but the colors today finally seemed like the right fit. And I think I was right, what do you think?!

Here’s the video:

Here is a close up in case you need a reminder to be your fabulous self!
