Really digging mixed media projects …

The thing I like most about creating mixed media pieces is … there are no rules! 
It is a very intuitive art form and allows you to try new things and play and have fun, all while creating beautiful art.

Here are some recent pieces I have completed.

Most of these pieces contain gelato colors, bits of napkin, Sharpie, watercolor pencils, and modeling paste.

I recommend everyone try something creative!  Very therapeutic!

Craft – Some Recent Mixed Media Projects

I love to experiment with new craft ideas.
The most recent love of my life is mixed media art journals and stand-alone pages.

I’m learning some of the techniques from playing around on my own and watching other mixed media artists on YouTube.

Here are some of my latest …

Finally Friday – 2/9/18 – What’s On Tap?

What’s on tap?
Not a whole lot.  It’s snowy and cold outside, and well – I just don’t function very well when it’s under 75 degrees outside.

I am working on a few craft projects:
I’m finishing up a New Baby Boy Mini Album commissioned by a lady I met in November.  Here are a couple pictures of some of the pages.  I will post a complete review of the finished album.

I’m also working on a jewelry order.
One of my musician friends – Mr. Chris Caffery of Trans-Siberian Orchestra –  saves all his guitar strings from the TSO tours and then I make bracelets out of them.  He then sells them on his website.  Check them out in his web store here … www.chriscaffery.com.

And I’ve been playing around with an art journal.
I have never done mixed media before, and certainly not water color, so it is a very steep learning curve for me.  I have thrown away 98% of the pages, but here are a couple I’ve kept.  I will be doodling around in this journal some more if I have time.

Other than that …
I also have some laundry to do – which I probably won’t do.  And I’ll visit my Mom!  

Have a great weekend everyone!
