Mixed Media “Believe”

Maybe you read in an earlier post that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to get messy in my studio and create art daily.  Part of that for me has been taking some classes.  This piece is from the first project I did in Doodle Too, a class by Stephanie Ackerman of Homegrown Hospitality.  I loved the process of creating the acrylic paint sky background, and Mod Podging paper scraps to it to create the scene.  I scanned the finished piece and printed/framed it.  The original is part of my art journal.  I have taken the novel approach of just enjoying the process of putting color on paper and letting go of the final outcome.  Way too fun.  Highly recommended.

Is there any medium at which you don’t instantly excel? :)) This mixed media piece is beautifully inspiring, and looks like you’ve been making these for years! It IS freeing to allow yourself to just get messy – that’s what my word was for 2012 (and for 2011 too!)…and to be honest, it is one that I always want to be reminded of!
