Nolan has gotten me excited about the mixed media concepts so I have been playing around with them. I am waiting for my sunflower to dry so I can post it but in the mean time some of my practice works using lesson concepts. Advice for improving is always welcome

Nolan I love the inspiration that I get from you.  :cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9:  Your lessons push me to think out-of-the-box!!!  I have learned so much from you!!!!

Fiona I raided my coffee supplies for that one and made my own templates for the coffee cups!!  It was sure a learning experience. Thanks so much

So clever! My fav is the coffee one - probably because we're coffee addicts here!!

Wow,  Sherri,  these look great.

I must admit that I was more pleased than I thought I would be when doing mixed media.  It does let you get really creative.

This is wonderful Sherri!

The grand-ma one is very nice, but I also have a soft spot for your coffee one. Love the colours and the way you did the coffee in the purple mug  :coffee:

Cheers, Annie

Wow! these are really great Sherri! I love them all but if I had to pick one, I'd go for Old Glory. I love the antique look of it.

Thanks Denise and Kelly.  They are both still up for sale.

I think the Old Glory is my favorite too although I had a blast doing all of them!!!
