"Dreams of Faraway Places..." New Mixed Media!

Im getting addicted these kinds of mixed media paintings I think!!  I love to look for beautiful fabrics and papers and beads to make the  'flowers' that go on the canvas!  This one I have made as an exact demo model for my new up and coming 'Cascading Garden' workshop next month.  I wanted to find the exact colours/fabrics/beads etc just right for the students to make their own in the workshop.  So just so you know, this is basically what you will be making right down to the beads/fabrics/papers  etc when you do this workshop.  I think down the track I will do different colour combo's as I tend to get sick of the same thing.  Unfortunately the photo's really don't show all the lovely metallic paint and glitter and sparkle that you see on it in the flesh.  Even the beads in the aqua coloured fabric flowers are a glittery colour and so so pretty!!  If you would like to participate in one of my workshops, please email me on juliemryder01@gmail.com.  This one is a 2 part workshop. Cheers Julie :)

    1. Thank you so much Esther! I am completely self-taught and I find that doing a little bit every day (or even once a week) keeps me very sane!! Good luck with your mixed media art! xx
