Trying Mixed Media Art

Hi everyone!

Can you believe that spring is less than a month away?


I am already working on my spring mantel… but still enjoying my winter mantel.

My only hint to it are flowers… creative flowers.


let’s talk art…

mixed media art.

Imagine Mixed Media Art

As some of you know, I use to paint and sell folk, whimsical type paintings…

not for long though… Sad smile

because when I finally took the leap to do it… @ a year later the economy collapsed and people quit put the brakes on buying original art.  I truly enjoyed that year and half I spent painting and selling… it was pure joy.

Dream Mixed Media Art

However, I eventually put up my supplies… even sold a few of them …and quit making art to sell.

DIY projects and mantel decoration took it’s creative place in my life and has filled that void of not painting.

Inspire Mixed Media Art

until now.

I have been longing to get back to creating some art.  And I have chosen to try mixed media as the place to start.

This is my first mixed media piece – evuh!

I call it BLOSSOM.

As I dabble in and learn this type of medium, I may share it here on my Creative Ambitions Blog for awhile… if that’s ok?  Smile

If I decide to sell again… I think I will move that to my art blog I ‘ve kept alive all this time… or maybe create a new one.

I’m also hoping to dabble in sewing and creating some different things.

Creating this piece really helped me to open my mind and heart again.

I will imagine the possibilities.

I will dream the impossible.


I hope to inspire others along the way.



I decided to change the colors on this piece…

brighten it up a bit…

here it is now…
