ArtStacks is thrilled to introduce our new Guest Designer. It’s Sasha Zeen! Sasha Zeen is a Ukrainian mixed media artist. Her art is intuitive and never pre-planned. She is into messy splashes of color, white space, black accents and applying paint with her fingers. We love Sasha’s work – her use of colour is superb and her pages are beautifully balanced.
Sasha chose to create with Deb Weiers’ Wonky Backgrounds pack. Here’s what Sasha had to say:
“Working with Deb Weiers Wonky Backgrounds paper pack was a freeing experience. Most papers in the pack already have beautiful abstract artworks on them, which eliminates the necessity to pull out your own paints and brushes in order to create a whimsical mixed media piece full of marks and splashes of color. Nevertheless, strangely, these papers were the thing that inspired me to pull out my long-forgotten acrylics and get my hands messy. So much fun! It felt like I was having a dialogue with Deb Weiers, almost an artist collaboration. The sheet of paper with bold and inspiring words made it possible to create some meaningful phrases and “found poetry” on my art journal spread.
All in all, Deb Weiers Wonky Backgrounds paper pack is enough to fill a whole art journal with fun artworks with minimal supplies involved. A real pleasure to work with.”
We’re so glad you loved working with Deb Weiers’ papers Sasha!
Here’s Sasha’s first project for you:
Wow! What a stunningly beautiful yet meaningful page!
This is the pack of ArtStacks papers that Sasha used. It has such a range of paper types from cardstock to transparent paper!
