Blog Posts are Like Busses…...

……...Nothing for two weeks and then two come along at once!!!!!

Just popping in to join in with the  fun over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week.  It seems ages since I played along.  This week was fun as the theme is anything goes!

So here is my entry.  Lots of paint, Paper and a few pretty flowers……

I decided to also challenge myself to keep it simple-ish and to limit my use of products as I wanted to make a video tutorial to encourage newbies to give Mixed Media a go.  I wanted to break the process of creation into easy to follow steps as I am sure at first glance any Canvas or Art Journal Page looks quite  complicated.

So thank you to the Team at Simon Says Stamp for this fun theme and I am sure there is going to be a huge variety of wonderful art shared as a result.  I really enjoyed putting my canvas together and hope that the video tutorial …..though lengthy!………encourages more people to get painty and in my case gluey too!

Here is the tutorial……definitely a cup of coffee and a slice of cake as you watch this one!

Thank you for popping by X
