Something for you

I was recently asked if I teach any classes in mixed media but I don't.
However it got me thinking 
I love sharing so I have put something together for you in this post.
I hope you enjoy it

 Be inspired. 

Find something you love to take a photo of
go to your stack
Get out all your scraps of paper
with your blank canvas

Use all your imagination 

Glue it all down 
with your 


              Gel Matt Medium.

Go on.........




Get out all your favourite paints


Don't hesitate



Feel good about what you do!

 Reach out for your pens

Dont feel tense

Just be you, let it happen
draw some fantasy

chase that inner critic off the fence!

Are you ready?

mix these together
Zinc White, Cerulean Blue,Cadium Yellow medium hue and Quinacridone Magenta.

 Now you have your flesh tones.

Just paint

La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la......

Ta da da   

This is mine
Now I want to see yours

Hi Manon, this is lovely and inspiring, thankyou! I've been caught up in family things lately and haven't had any time to paint. This is a breath of sunshine to me today. :)
