15 Minutes of Mixed Media™ is an exercise in making time for art.
You can use the 15 minutes any way you choose

*practice new techniques
* experiment with the color wheel
*perfect a favorite medium
*experiment with your tools
15 Minutes of Mixed Media™ has never been about beautiful finished pages. It has always been about just making time to sit down and create something.
I know you have been asking so here it is...I will begin sharing 15 Minutes of Mixed Media™ again in February of this year. To begin the year off, I will be posting a video twice a month. What else will I share?
ONE 7-8 MINUTE VIDEO FEATURING ME CREATING IN MY ART JOURNAL
I create a real time 15 minute video and edit it with a slight fast forward feature to 7-8 minutes
VIDEO IS UN-NARRATED BUT CLEARLY SHOWS WHAT I AM CREATING
Lovely music accompanies each video
IMAGES OF THE COMPLETED JOURNAL PAGE
These images will include one or more details shot of the page
LINKS TO ALL SUPPLIES USED IN THE VIDEO
If I can't link to a particular supply I will link to something similar
A FEW NOTES ABOUT WHAT I WAS THINKING AS I CREATED
This is an exercise in just getting something down. It isn't always about creating a beautiful or finished page. I always share my thoughts for the week to help you relate to what I may or may not struggle with as a artist while working with the clock ticking
SOMETHING ELSE THAT I DO
When I am creating these exercises I try to limit myself to the supplies that I can reach
* only use what you can reach
* pre-select ten tools & mediums before you begin
* practice with different mediums
* have someone choose your tools for you
* work with tools that are new to you
* use only recycled tools
If you participate in social media please use the above hashtag so we can all share the inspiration.
I hope you will join me - Happy Creating!
