Mixed Media’s Theme was all about emracing yourself as an Artist.  I saw a post on Facebook with this quote:


It reminded me that sometimes it is hard to Embrace those titles but why limit yourself by not claiming it.  We are all creative in SO many ways.  So tonight we embrace that Title but do not let it limit us.  We let it launch us!  and here is the 11 X 15 I painted from that…..


MATERIALS LIST: Journal – Strathmore Mixed Media Vellum Surface Windpower, Paints & Gesso – DecoArt (Americana – Graphite, Irish Moss, Yellow Green & White Wash), Inks:  Dr Ph Martn’s & Daler Rowney, Maskig Tape, Pens:  Uniball Signo & Sharpie, Mists, Heidi Swapp & Lindy’s Stamp Gang, and Pan Pastels


If you missed it LIVE it is recorded for your viewing pleasure and available on my YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TraceB5.



That page just needed one more thing and I had no idea it was going to be for the BLACK India Ink to explode right out of the dropper!  So into creative recovery mode I went and what came of this page was a “good mishap” to quote one of our Moderators Mary……PHEW!


I always say there is a fix for everything but Black India Ink does have a way of stopping your heart for a brief second!

Remember to join the Facebook Group HERE and share your projects!  I am assigning EVERYONE this week to embrace and do an “I AM AN ARTIST” page so I can share on my blog. Embrace that ARTISTIC YOU!  This is a creative journey we walk together.  ♥  See you Next MONDAY!
