A Free Mixed Media Tutorial

Hello lovelies!

How’s it going? Hope all is well in your part of the world!

In the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the most amazing opportunities to meet some on my online friends in real life! I am continually amazed at the beautiful and real connections that form over the internet and the wonderful opportunities that emerge from those connections!

One online friend I would love to meet, is the fabulous Donna Downey! You can imagine how honored I was when she asked me to create a Mixed Media Tutorial for her blog! Woo! So fun! She featured it a few weeks back but I wanted to share it with you guys too, in case you missed it.

This piece is called “Into the Light” and it is a process of stenciling, paint, collage and encaustic wax! And yes, even some sculpture. I hand made her wings with paper, wire and wax.

You can watch the entire process of me creating this OVER HERE!



I hope you enjoy! My plan for the New Year is to create more of these free projects. I’m so excited….I have a list of ideas brewing.

Please do share your experience if you try this project out – I would love to hear from you.

Much love and gratitude,

    Hi Ivy, Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful piece! We recently had a tragedy at my kids’ school (in Corbett, OR) and I hope I can attempt this piece as a gift for the grieving parents. What a difference your art makes in so many people’s lives. Can’t thank you enough.

I would love to hear from you! What are your thoughts?
