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!
