"My Happy Place" — 13 Layers Art Fix class project — mixed media on wood panels

We've made some crazy fun artwork in November Art Fix classes:

With the paper and plaster cloth we made in October, we each created a unique piece. I made s plaster cloth hanging. Others made book covers, art journal page "sculptures" and canvases.

We made beautiful pieces featuring thirteen layers of mixed media goodness. We had four classes doing thirteen layers so as you can see in the photo, I created a different wood panel each time—a series.

We also created collages with altered photographs, and we turned to weaving paper and cloth.

What a fun month of creativity!

YOU SHOULD join us! 

We have one more week left before our holiday break and we are going to do Reflections Art Journal pages.  Register on OUR MEETUP SITE .

What I've been sharing on the blog

What's a blog if it's not useful, entertaining or inspiring?  I share stuff I know and think about and learn so that you can dive in more deeply into your own creative life.

In November...

I reviewed how to Buy Art Supplies. In Part I we talked about the importance of developing a healthy relationship with art supplies before you begin buying and collecting them, and then in Part II we get to the nitty gritty: how to buy (and find) art supplies so that you have enough—without amassing too much or not enough. All in all, lots of great tips for what can be a second hobby: collecting art supplies!

You'll find some of my current favorite links in For Your Weekend...just stuff I think you shouldn't miss!

I shared my gratitude. Thanksgiving-inspired.

I reflect on the importance of honoring your creativity in The heart wants what the heart wants.

Finally, in my new creative series, Diary of An Art Journal, you'll find my Diva of a Diary does the talking— sharing insights into the magic of art journaling that even I don't understand. You'll find the latest installments in this admittedly zany idea of a series here. 

If this content sounds useful, entertaining and inspiring follow along as I send it out! Subscribe through email or RSS on the blog (see Sidebar).


You can come to any Art Fix class any day of the week, any week, as long as seats are available (RSVP on our meetup site—see below).

Tuesday and Thursday Art Fix classes are scheduled every week unless otherwise announced here and on Meetup.
