Collage or Backgrounds, You Decide

Collage or Backgrounds, You Decide

Today, in my Facebook group, Art Journaling Secrets Unleashed! it was FB Live! day… and we created an Extended Page…. and one type of Pocket! I love showing new ideas and tips to people who are interested in Mixing their media types in art. Is that you? Does that describe you? If so, I have some collage papers you can download… yes, free! I created them so you have MY permission to print them to use in collages or mixed media as often as you like… just don’t print to hang or sell please. Here is the link to download them. I’d love it if you shared one of the projects you use it in. You can post pictures on my Facebook Group: Art Journaling Secrets Unleashed OR Ruth Inman Art – both groups are accessible.

Here is a sneak peek at the assortment… Then click the link above. I think you’ll like them.

Art… the key to happiness.

Yesterday I had a small class, actually a one-on-one Mixed Media. I had been thinking about how to teach this for a while, and yesterday helped connect the dots for me. I’m so looking forward now to organizing this class, and then offering it. I think it can help a lot of people. You just don’t realize (perhaps) how much art can help alleviate stress and lift your mood! Here are 2 pieces I created in the same day… for different reasons… but still.. I feel SO GOOD about accomplishing them!

Mixed Media 12″ x 12″
Ghosts 9″ x 12″

I love the colors in this one as I strived (strove) for balance, much like I’m looking for balance in my life. Art helps with that. The feeling of creating something is like no other.

The ghosts below were a creation for my Art Journaling group. We have daily prompts and yesterday’s was Ghosts. Check us out sometime, you might be surprised how you feel after creating even the simplest piece. And there are some really good pieces to look at! We are on Facebook… and the group is called: Art Journaling Secrets Unleashed – because after all… Art Journaling is Mixed Media.
