Tonight I took a Mixed Media class just a few steps from my home (which made the access to my studio for extra art supplies oh-so-easy). We had an art class in the lobby of our condominium building ... so fun to make art with lots of other artsy folks.
The grid of hearts on the right was the sample of the project we were making ... and that lovely smiling lady is our teacher, Mixed Media Artist Dori Patrick.
We started by drawing a grid on our canvas (I worked with a 12" x 12") and then added modeling paste for texture. Next we added papers and fabric (and in my case some lace too) to create the grid backgrounds or the hearts.
I especially loved the Pebeo shimmery pearl teal paint ... must get a tube of my own to try with Gel Press printing.
