Mixed Media Collage Tutorial


Hello Love! Today I’m giving a quick mixed media lesson where I show you how to create a loose, intuitive piece with no preconceived idea about where it will end up. You can watch this video to simply relax and be inspired. Or you can watch it twice, once to see what to expect and again with your materials out to follow along. Just hit pause as needed to take things step by step because i move the video along at a quick pace.

Art is a beautiful experiment, so no matter where you are in your art journey, the most important thing is to show up and get started with an open mind. Practice and you will learn something new every time.

I hope you enjoyed this process. Thank you for watching. I had a lot of fun making this piece and I encourage you to try it out in your own personal way with the materials that you have on hand. Happy painting. Much love!
