Last fall I went to an art retreat and made this mixed media bird with red shoes.
The mixed media art retreat I went to is called Art-is-You.
It was my second time there and once again the workshops I took were with Tracy Verdugo. Not only is she a fabulous mixed media art teacher, she is kind and gentle.
She has a book coming out this summer called Paint Mojo – A Mixed-Media Workshop: Creative Layering Techniques for Personal Expression. I just know it will be a perfect reference book for your library.
What I loved about the process is that some of it was intentional and some of it was random.
Seeing the images in a cropped up version has given me some new ideas for working in my art journal.
