One of the things I love most about our community is how much artists share with one another. From all the tutorials, to the step outs, to the wonderful comments we leave on each others' blogs -- there is a lot of beautiful generosity and love going around.
So in this spirit, I share some of the steps in a mixed media canvas. It is unquestionably influenced by the amazing women I studied with at Art is You. It started with lots of collage (Cindy Wunsch), included the liberal spreading of molding paste around a mask of a house, a bird and a heart made of model magic, and scribble paint (Sue Pelletier), and incorporated some of the face shading I learned from Pam Carriker. I'd like to think I've taken what they've taught me and made it my own.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. This is how we learn. We study, we look at art, we continue to create, and we take into our spirits everything we've learned from everyone we've learned from. No amount of knowledge is ever wasted!
The lovely sentiment is from a trade I got at Art is You from beautiful woman and amazing artist Kirsten Reed!
