Along with the textile art and dying fabric that I have been telling you about, I also love mixed media art. I love mixing watercolors, acrylics, inks, collage, etc. I often use all of these on a single piece of art. I find it interesting to push traditional boundaries and to experiment with different mediums and techniques. This side is the same side of me who likes to experiment in the kitchen and often doesn't use a recipe. It is also the side of me that loves science experiments and finding out what will happen if I do "that". If I create a piece of art that is pretty or tells a story during my experimenting I feel fulfilled. If I create something ugly or hated that is okay too, because that is the only way to learn. After all it is only art supplies, not something irreplaceable. I hope that I can encourage those of you who enjoy creating to push boundaries too and find out what will happen and how you love to create. Please feel free to share your results and your great creative loves with me. I share a few of my recent pieces with you.
I hope that you enjoyed this small sample of my mixed media art. Please share your creative outlets with me. What do you enjoy doing and how do you push boundaries?

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
