Art Journals and Mixed Media Art

In the recent months, I have engaged in mixed media art. I always wanted to draw and never could to my liking.  I have engaged in  many crafts, I love to create. I love making jewelry, creams, crocheting etc...  Mixed Media Art is another way of creating art where your skills of drawing is not needed. I highly recommend this craft to all those who enjoy creating artistic colors and shapes on canvas or on paper for that matter. The acrylic paints are very inexpensive as well as the the mediums and tools needed to get started.  It has truly been wonderful experience since the beginning. I am now enrolled in journalling groups, where I display my artwork along with others.  I will display my artwork in my blog periodically sharing my work. I am in process of learning how to do a video with details of the instruments and supplies used to create my art work. There are so many choices, you can use stencils, stamps,  tissue paper, napkins. You can create your own stamps or stencils. You can use a gelli plate to make mono prints on your canvas or art paper. It is an exciting world of creating thru art media.  The opportunities of creating art in the Mixed Media world are endless.
