Hope everyone has been enjoying their weekends. I am up early this morning so I can watch the British Open. I am a golf fan and I love Tiger Woods! And Phil Mickelson! So this is gonna be a quick post, so I can get back to cheering them on!
I am still trying my hand at the mixed media thing...so this is my latest.
I used the colors for the current
Here is a little closeup. I cut circles of paper and added buttons to make flowers.
I used the Mona Pendleton Design MFT stencil-Stone Wall with fiber paste to make the walls of one of the houses.
I like the therapy of getting messy with mixed media, but I can't seem to make anything pretty with mixed media. It's like I start creating and I just start thinking about texture and paints. I need to learn how to make a plan first or a sketch. I just don't get it! I love what I see others doing, especially on You Tube. I get excited and want to experiment, but I don't know if I will get the hang of it!
It is a juxtaposition in my brain between my love of white space and love of the art of mixed media.
But I am not afraid of trying to learn! I have even signed up for a Mixed Media class with Donna Downey in August and I am very excited about that! I am VERY fortunate that her studio is only 45 minutes from where I live! yay!
Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoy the golf game ~ Phil is a Phoenix hometown boy :) Can't wait to hear about your class! Thanks so much for joining along with A Mixed Media Color Challenge!
I love the colours and all the texture on this piece Mackie. I don't have much success with mixed media but I really like it when I see others do it.

Go Phil go! So excited for him and his family today! My late husband was a golfer and a huge golf fan! Phil is my favorite player and I watched him win today (on tv) and was in tears! What a fantastic golf moment!
