Back to the Blog World with New Mixed Media Journal

Even though I've been distracted by stuff that happens sometimes, I did manage some happy art time.  Being that things for me are only going up, I'm looking forward to even more fun art times and adventures.

Below are collages from a journal I'm working in with acrylic paints, oil pastels, paper, rub-ons, rubber stamps, images, and who knows what else by the time I'm done. 
 



Recently I'm really enjoying using Shiva Paint Sticks which is unusual for me because I don't care for oil paints. These are easy to use and I love the soft blended look after I rub it with my fingers on paper.  Have you used these?  Comment below to let me know all about it.  Haven't used it on fabric or anywhere else, but YouTube has several awesome videos on how to use these in many ways.  Here's a quick one for you. Enjoy!



'Till next time, enjoy your creating!!

They are very pretty but the odor was so overwhelming I gave them away!
