Boho ~ Day One

Our first Boho Art day was spent with mixed media.

Our fingers were covered with paint, glue, ink, paper, charcoal, …  you get the idea.

As I recently took the ‘She Art’ class by Christy Tomlinson, I encouraged the gals with the idea of adding their own creative girl to their work.

Mixed Media is a fun one to work with because it combines nearly everything that you’ve ever played with in art starting with your first art class in Kindergarten {and earlier}.  You can use a combination of just about any technique and it causes you to creatively think of things that you’ve never tried before.  There simply are no rules and no mistakes.  Just keep working at it until you love the finished project.

We started with an 8×10 canvas so we could play with some of the options and techniques, then we moved on to a larger board turning it into a one-of-a-kind clipboard.

I’m so glad {and blessed} that Amber Strehle was able to join us on Saturday to capture some of the projects, food, people, festivities,….I’m excited to share these pictures of hers and more {as she shares them with me} over the next few days.  Check out her BLOG as she has been writing posts on her recent trip to Africa.

I mentioned taking a mixed media art class by Christy Tomlinson.  I also wanted to mention that she will be starting a new online class soon called, She Had Three Hearts.  Fun, sweet gal!  Click HERE if interested in more information on that!
