Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog!

I am super SUPER excited to share some news with you! 

I am debuting my first mixed media piece 

Featuring that multi-talented mixed media guru Andy SkinnerI am over the moon ecstatic to be a member of this AMAZINGLY talented group of artists whose work I have admired for a long time. PINCH ME!! 

Here are the other members of DecoArt's International Design Team

Andy Skinner
Mark Gould
Claudia Neubacher
Jools Robertson
Louise aka "ZuZu"
Mel aka "The Yorkshire Fox"
Elly Pirally
Angelica S
Lindsay Mason
Michelle Webb

My first piece, titled "Dragonfly Lady" is a book tutorial that can be seen on the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog. It is a plain paper mache book that, through the magic of DecoArt's Media Line products, is transformed into a realistic looking old book with torn, worn pages and a very dimensional distressed and patina metal cover. 

In this tutorial there are lots of techniques that can help you with your mixed media projects!  So when you view the tutorial, don't just think of recreating this book. Get your imagination spinning with all of the things you can create using DecoArt's amazing paint and other mediums! 

Check out the tutorial and if you see something that inspires you, please be sure to leave a positive comment. That would totally make my day!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to take time for yourself to PLAY!
