Mixed Media Art

Mixed Media

I have not played with mixed media art in years and had forgotten how much fun it is.  I really enjoyed making this 8.5x11 piece featuring a bird on a branch.

Guess I will have to splurge on some Gelatos and see if they are easier to use than the pastels.


  1. It IS fun, isn't it?! I'm new to collaging and have already acquired quite a collection of gels, glues and the like. I've done a few small pieces, but my goal is to do a canvas for my bedroom. My own art on the wall, it's kind of scary.

    1. One of the fabulous things about displaying your own art (besides the compliments) is that you can change the pieces out and have your own art gallery. You can see the progression in you own style and design. Expressing yourself through art is very rewarding.
