Easy Christmas Projects--Ooh-la-la!

I am the author of Mixed Media Art: Living Your Passion available on Amazon for $2.99. In this ebook, you can learn about myriad creative projects and where to get images and materials at bargain prices for your art. No need to own a Kindle to read it! Go HERE to download a free app. ...easy-peasy!

I am a gallery artist and love teaching others about mixed media projects that they can make easily. Here are some that I just created on large tiles...

Paris Dreams

Fleur de Lis

Postcards from Paris

I purchased large tiles at Home Depot for under $1 a piece. Then, I printed out graphics, cut them, and adhered them with a foam brush with Mod Podge. I used a brayer to flatten the images....Let the pieces dry, and voila! I was done.

Images are from:

The Graphics Fairy--(Eiffel Tower & stamps.)

Shabby Cottage Studio (Postcards & stamps.)

Dezinaworld (Fleur de Lis.)

  1. That's a great gift idea ;) :) I love that the cost was reasonable, too :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. Fantastic idea Cindy! Looks beautiful, too.

    I was about to purchase your e-book Mixed Media ARt... Living Your Passion on Amazon and though I ought to download Kindle first for my Mac. I discovered I don't have the required operating system. I don't plan to upgrade anytime soon, so I was wondering if you had your book available as anything else like a pdf for purchase?
