Helen Thompson Mixed Media Artist

Helen Thompson is one of our longstanding One Craft Gallery members who works in mixed media to create colourful, highly textured and expressive art work.

Here are some of Helen’s most recent card designs featuring wonderfully colourful vases of flowers.  Both cards were made out of papers that Helen first printed using a gel plate.  One of the papers was used for the background and the other was used to create the floral motifs.  Using different punches and hand cutting to create the flowers, Helen created a collage with matt medium before further embellishing the design with black marker and white gel pens.

The results are two wonderfully colourful and summery floral designs!

A selection of Helen’s original artwork, cards and hand made gift bags are always available in One Craft Gallery and more information about Helen’s work and her inspiration can be found on her blog www.hmtmixedmedia.blogspot.co.uk
