Thankful for another fun Mixed Media Monday.  It felt so great to get creative with you all.  I painted this 11″ X 14″ Canvas panel which was inspired by the words of my friend Ilana Swartz.  It is so great when the words of someone who means a great deal to you just works……..You feel them like she does and hope you do them justice.  Featured:  DecoArt Media and Dynasty Brushes….

I will tell you that my after-show idea of printing my text on a painted piece of paper worked like a charm (PLEASE do not blame me if you try and it ruins your printer…do not try this at home):

  • Paint copy paper with desired color
  • Spray with sealer
  • Print
  • Spray with sealer
  • Adhere to page with Matte Medium

Love all the texture in this piece and how easy it was!….
