Mixed Media Workshop

I have been dabbling with different types of creative expression over the past year. I love the idea of Mixed Media--I love that it incorporates many types of materials and I can mix old, found items with newer pieces that I find interesting.

This weekend I had the most amazing experience--I was able to attend a Mixed Media Collage workshop taught by Wayne Brezinka. I learned so much and met so many great people. There is just something so invigorating being around  other creative people, listening to them talk about their art and seeing the creative process at work.

Here is my finished piece:

 (I used acrylic paints, picture turns, twine, string, and various papers that I had laying around)

Wayne was just amazing. He is also a great teacher. If you ever have the opportunity to take one of his workshops, do it!

 I go back and forth with what I like to create with and right now I am doing a lot of crocheting. These are a couple of scarves that I have made recently and given as gifts. 

I love the way the yarn feels as it goes through my fingers.

I love how one piece of yarn starts out as one single long thread, but by weaving and twisting it in and around itself, can become something useful and beautiful.
