My Venture into Mixed Media

I had no idea where to start when it came to mixed media, so I purchased an online course by Christy Tomlnson and away I went!
I wanted to create something'school themed' that was inspirational to display on the top of my bookcase at work. I got out my sketch pad and threw around some ideas and came up with pencil, school-house and apple and went from there, exploring with paint, texture paste, spray, stencilling,  stamps and rub-ons. (I knew there was a reason I kept hold of all those crappy rub-ons!) They are perfect for this style of creating.
I love how they turned out. Not bad for a first attempt! Now I'm looking forward to creating more!

Thanks for looking and remember to leave me a comment to say you stopped by!


  1. Where will you be hanging these little beauties Shelee?? At school?
    They are so fab, gorgeous colours & love how you have continued it over to the edge as well.
    Happy creating in 2013!

  2. These canvases are stunning Michelle! I love the texture paste and stencilling too! xxx
