Mixed Media May
and for every day in May for the past few years, they have a guest mixed media artist and an interview.
I was guest artist a couple of years ago on this blog. To get directly to my interview, click
Melanie Douthit Mixed Media May Interview
So.......... for tonight's class I am demonstrating my technique for painting on a collaged paper background. I will take a prepared background and go from there. FUN and SCARY because my students get to see any woops that can happen, which, frankly, is a plus because we all need to know that creating is a process with an unexpected end result and bumps and woopsies come along the way, so you learn to improvise!
and I can NOT stress enough to everyone to follow this blog NOW! This new mixed media blog will have prizes! but you need to follow and comment on the blog, and also on Facebook!!! Who doesn't like inspiration AND the possibility of GOODIES to create with? Go to
Mixed Media Monthly Challenge
This is what I am working on right now. It's not technically mixed media, but I did do something new on it.
