Mixed Media Projects From Saints, Sinners & Shrines Class

Our class over at Artful Gathering is coming to a close. I have learned so many new techniques and can't wait to apply them to future projects. Here are two projects that I have finished so far and wanted to share them with you.

I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting!

Clay Embellishments for Future Projects

Hello Everyone!

I love the projects that I have been creating lately but waiting for them to dry is so hard! In order to keep myself busy and not be tempted to start working on these pieces, I remembered I had some clay embellishments and decided to decorate them for future projects. It's much easier working on air clay because the gesso & acrylic paint dry fairly fast. After the paint dried, I added Inka Gold Metallics to help bring out some of the dimensions in each piece.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and thank you for stopping by!

Saints, Sinners & Shrines Class with Mary Jane Chadbourne

Hello Everyone!!!

How's summer treating you? It's been a little too warm here in Chicagoland but winter will be upon us soon, so I really can't complain.

I've been taking an online class called Saints, Sinners & Shrines - Alternatives to Honoring the Divine Within from Mary Jane Chadbourne. She is a wonderful artist & such a great teacher and fills the class with a lot of tips and inspiration.

Below are some examples of the effects she teaches in her class. I am having loads of fun and learning quite a bit. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
