Mixed Media Monday was another great night in the Studio.  I just love sharing time with my Dad in there!  He is so much fun and I know he enjoyed it too (he secretly loves the spotlight).





This monday was about keeping it simple (I am getting over the CHA flu I brought home with me) and sharing our artwork.  There are a lot of cards I need to send this week and many friends who need prayers so I thought this was the best way to share.  This was also one of my most favorite classes to teach in 2013.

Here are the cards I created:




Remember these are fast and easy expressions of your art so have fun!

MATERIALS LIST:  Paper cut to 4.5″ X 6.5″ – Strathmore MixedMedia Vellum Surface, Watercolor Paints – Grumbacher Deluxe Transparent & Deluxe Opaque, Pens – Sharpie and Uniball Signo White



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



Fun to see my dad playing along with me and I was going FAST!



I love that many were painting along with me (or trying because I was Edward Painting-Hands that night and going fast to fit in as many cards as possible)
