One Powerful Hour

There is a new challenge site in town and it is called One Powerful Hour. It is posted every Thursday and the aim is to make something under an hour and even tidy up after yourself a little (that is the tough part). It is an open theme this week and I have been so busy this past week that I am submitting some work that I made a while ago but definitely was completed under an hour. It is using an acetate technique with alcohol inks which is inspired by Zuzu

So stop on by and join in the fun!

Try Something New.... OK!

I think it's great that the theme this week on Mixed Media Monday is Try Something New because I did just that! I have just completed a 5 week mixed media art class run by an extremely talented lady - Paulette Insall. This Monday was the last class and this is one of my completed pieces.

The canvas is a combination of acyrlic paint, rubber stamping and collage images - and so many techniques I wouldn't even know where to start telling you. I have learnt so much so as you can see this is perfect for this week's theme. Click on the image for more detail.

I have a couple more canvasses I am working on so I have no doubt they will appear another day... This has been an extremely fun and educational class and I highly reccomend it to everyone!
