Only from the Heart.....

Today I made my first piece of mixed media art. It was so much fun ~ I don't know why I put off trying for so long! Mixed media has been popping up all over the place lately and youtube is filled with videos to get you started off in the right direction.

The painting is not perfect, but it makes my heart so happy ~ and that's what's important about art. It needs to speak to you directly and not suffer from other people's opinions.

The only thing I would like to try to do differently is instead of painting on canvas I'd like to try a different background like wood, an art journal or art board. She ended up with a crease on her cheek when I transfered the image to the canvas and I think with a harder surface that wouldn't be an issue.

Wishing you a day of heart happiness!
