I’m here to share a mixed media piece with you this week. I am a huge mixed media fan and when I see a new class I can’t resist signing up, especially when it sounds as amazing as Christy Tomlinson’s She Art Workshop. I just finished the course and it was one of the best I’ve ever taken (which says a lot since I have taken quite a few of them.)
I’ve created a few “she art” pieces during Christy’s class and I wanted to share them with you. Since I wasn’t very sure if I would do a good job, I did my very first girl in my art journal (I write text on the left side which is why it’s empty.):
Now that I’d practiced a bit, I was ready to move to another piece. This time, I tried to create a whole scene and had a lot of fun with my girl:
As you can see, except for some generic stamps and rubons, both pieces only use Pink Paislee products. The bright colors and shapes in our papers make them perfect for mixed media pieces. On this canvas I mixed papers from the Hometown Summer, Daily Junque and Soiree collections.
Because SHE IS amazing; Christy has offered to give away not one but TWO seats to our Pink Paislee blog readers. She is giving away one seat in She Art Workshop (starts April 11) and one seat in her brand new She Had Three Hearts Workshop (starts May 23). Christy is an amazing teacher; these workshops have detailed videos that go through her process step by step and I have already signed up for her second class. I cannot recommend them enough.
To be eligible for the giveaways, leave a comment on this blog post and we’ll announce the winners on April 7th.
And, if you’ve been using Pink Paislee products in your mixed media projects, we’d love to see those, too!
