New Mixed Media Paintings

Good morning everyone,

I have something slightly different for you today. I have noticed I am totally neglecting my paintings and other artwork on this blog. I always write about quilts but never about the paintings. So today I'll show you 2 new mixed media paintings.

You might remember the "Up up and away" mixed media painting which I am selling a print of in the art shop?

Well, I have made 2 more in a similar style. This is a fairly new thing for me, I have only recently started playing around with mixed media and am planning to do much more with it. I actually really want to combine fabric, thread, paper and paint in more modern abstract artwork, so watch this space.

But these 2 pieces are part of the nursery art collection I am working on.

The "Party Cake"

And "A girl can never have too many shoes" would be perfect for a little girl's room.

All 3 of these were crafted/painted on gallery canvas sized 20" x 20" and the originals will be available at the craft fair next week.

What do you think? Do you like them?

Lots of love,


  1. Love them! All 3 would be great for a kids room! Will you have them all available in your Etsy shop?

  2. Thank you. At the moment only the "Up up and away" print is available in the shop and I will upload the other 2 prints after the craft show next week. I'll let you know when they are available. (I also need to wait for the sun to come out for some decent photos.)

  3. I love the party cake one the best. The other two are really cool! What do you use to make them? =D

  4. Oh I use everything I can find. Acrylic paint and lots of stuff to create texture, designer scrapbook paper, all sorts on pens and pencils, mod podge of course, die cuts, chipboard gves it dimension, and I love using rub ons too.
