My newest, all improved Mixed Media Mandala class is going live on Monday 7th March and I thought I would show you a little of the video sneak peeks! In this class, we paint backgrounds, create luscious layers using acrylic, inks, collage and more! To create BEAUTIFUL backgrounds to then paint our mandalas and Dream Catcher inspired art over the top.

This class is about creating mandala masterpieces for you to hang on your wall or give as a gift. Many of my previous students have gone onto sell their creations on Etsy or their website shops and continue to explore the beautiful layering that can be created using all of these different techniques.
We paint on stretched canvas of all different sizes using acrylics and inks.
We take what I like to call ‘ghost prints’ of our paintings to create more backgrounds on watercolor paper to paint on or use as collage material. :-)
We also explore inks on wood panels which bring out the grain and create the most vibrant earthy and fun effects!
The joy is in the process itself! I recently spent a couple of hours in my studio creating a huge pile of backgrounds on canvas and wood especially for this class. So LOTS of new videos
AND there is MORE! After we have created our backgrounds, we then go on to create the most BEAUTIFUL mixed media mandalas and also Dreamcatcher art. Here is a little peek:
