Mixed Media Monday

Happy Monday!

I've been doing a lot of reading about Mixed Media both online and in library books. I love the versatility of using mixed media to create pleasing visual imagery. This past weekend I was blessed with time to experiment with some of the materials & techniques I've been reading about and I share with you a couple of things I created using acrylic paint, pastels, stamps, and collage materials.

Mixed Media on Canvas:

The beginning of an altered book:

Children's board book found at the Salvation Army...
Stay tuned as this one evolves.....

I also tried an image transfer but it was a bit of a "FAIL" so no photo here! I can see where I went wrong, though and I'm excited to try it again!

 Why do YOU love Mixed Media?

  1. Hello! I'm new to your blog, but am definitely enjoying it. I'm trying to get back into art after a long break. I'd love to hear what sites/books you are using that you referenced in this post.

    I think your portrait is great, and I'd love to see your book when it's done.


Your comments mean a lot to me! Please stop by and say hi!
