Mixing it up

My current area of exploration is mixed media and collage. Those who have an art studio or creative space understand the ongoing effort of brush and tool maintenance, cleaning up, using up and sorting through paints, papers and other supplies.

Lately I’ve been collecting, sorting and storing little bits of paper. Some humorists say, this is a perfect hobby for those who need to channel their compulsion to hoard.

You only need 5 basic supplies to make a mixed media composition – canvas, paints, brushes, glue and coloured paper or card stocks.
