Fortune {A Mixed Media Canvas & Mixed Media MOODS Challenge}

HellooooO!

Thank you so much for joining me today ♥

There are some PRETTY exciting things happening 'round here! This year I have found myself among some pretty amazing talent on the Donna Downey Studio Artist Gang for 2016.. one of those talented souls belongs to Jenn Engle of Mixed Media Jenn. In a joint effort to fill our youtube channels with high quality videos AND stretch our creative brains we've started challenging each other once a month with mood boards. We decided to bring the whole idea together in a segment we're calling Our Mixed Media MOODS.


Hosted by Jenn Engle & DeeDee Catron of course! On a rotating shift we will take turns creating a mood board for the two of us to base a project on. We will create said project under video, edit and upload to our respective YouTube channels. In an effort to include our friends and fans we're making the mood boards available to each of you and inviting you to also create a project! At this time there is no "incentive" except creative expression and comradery ♥♥ By linking up you'll provide us with a way to find you and our friends & fans to find you. That seems WIN WIN to me! pssst -- if you join us or talk about our pieces please include hashtag #mixedmediamood ♥

Our first board was from the delectable brain of Jenn :


I drew inspiration from the tint of gold, the neutrals, the astrology aspect, fibers and the nature / sticky / sort of natural element. Keeping those things in mind I created FORTUNE {A Mixed Media Canvas}


Um... RIGHT?! I'm so stoked with this piece. It really speaks to my soul and makes me feel at one with.. well.. my creative infused brain. I just loved the creation process and the final product. So please watch the following video, then feast upon some close ups, the supplies list, important links and then link up! ♥♥♥ See you on the 20th of August for the 2nd installment!

  3. This might seem to be a silly question, but I don't know how to see the next mood board. I like to art journal and thought I may use your mood boards to help me get inspired to do more pages.
