some mixed media anyone?

This is what started the love affair with mixed media. I took this canvas class at my favorite scrapbook store,the class was actually taught by my amazingly talented bff Kimberly. I was re-thinking even going to the class and tried to back out but she wouldn't let. Am I ever glad that she didn't.
The class was on a saturday, the following day we had our monthly scrapbooking group in the stores classroom. I sat there and watched Kimberly play in the art journal she had created and I wanted to play. She gave me a sheet out of her canvas paper book and let me use her paints, tools and stamps. This is what I created! The heart and flower stems are both foam stamps created by the super talented and inspiring Donna Downey. Definitely take the time to check out heblog. She is very personable and funny. I am looking forward to taking some of her pan pastel online courses soon.
This is an actual painting I did, I am pretty proud of it. Lol. I like how I was able to get the grass with texture to it. I used my black pitt pen for some outlining. So many different things to try. I am looking forward to this artistic journey I have embarked on. Please feel free to join me. Jos
