  2. Thanks so much Karen!
    It's so fun watching you create. After and while a I watch I can't help but want to create anything. It brings to the surface what I love most.
    So again thanks so much for your time and FUN energyโฃ๏ธ
    God's Blessings๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  3. Another wicked video Karen so full of knowledge & your mixed media girl turned out brilliantly ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜

  4. Wow!! Energy and a flood of information! Great encouragement for newbies, adding the two links was genius. Thanks KC!

  5. Congrats youโ€™ve got the commission from Artarama ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™ŒYay! Job well done. She looks really good ! Love the tissue paper – they have such a nice tissue papers now for like $1-2 a pack that makes so much more sense then going for โ€œmixed-mediaโ€ tissue paper and pay $15 for just a little, tiny roll – that epiphany (๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ), hit me yesterday when I bought both of these types. Hobby Lobby has a nice collection and Hallmark, Iโ€™m sure many other places as well. Love your girl – sheโ€™s AbFab ๐Ÿ’–! Thank you for sharing other links!!! Love your Fun, Fab, Drawing Club – sketching something or other everyday – because thatโ€™s like a must for any artist; however, Iโ€™m split between lots of projects-you know how that goes-I do mixed-media, โ€œgirlsโ€ and lots of abstract collage; different art-journal, altering books, what-not, all but a kitchen sink โ€” so Iโ€™m not necessarily posting everything โ€” plus I can take photos only during the day โ€” daylight prevents me from having shadows and glare. So greatly appreciating all your tutorials โ€” big THANK YOU! ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–

  6. You are such an amazing and inspiring artist! I absolutely love this and all your work. TFS!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ

  7. Sheโ€™s terrific…congrats on your commission for Jerryโ€™s. Speaking of, any word on the art sets you did for them.

  8. As usual great video Karen. I have a question. I saw you put a heart in front of your signature. My question is do you always do this? I guess I haven't noticed it before. The reason I ask is because I have been adding a heart after my signature for years. Just curious. Thanks

  9. I just love this lesson. You make it so easy because you can DRAW. I'm still learning that but I love your freedom in ever moment. And love you, too.

  10. She looks like Cruella DeVille's sister who likes foxes instead of Dalmatians, she is fabulous.

  11. Happy Friday Karen! So I have NO mixed media experience…but I did get training in oil painting. I'm curious, I've heard you say in a couple of videos to avoid oil based products all together. Is that just a rule of thumb to make it easier? In school I was taught you can always layer oil over acrylic, but never acrylic over oil, so I've very often done acrylic under-paintings. Also I've often used clear gesso if I want to leave an interesting background/painting surface exposed. Would it be possible for someone, like me, who is interested in oils to do it as a final layer over your "hamburger" as you called it? Also worth mentioning, they have water mixable oils paints these days for anyone who doesn't want all the icky chemicals (I still don't think you want to layer anything over them though). Love watching your videos!

  12. I'm waiting for your book to come from Amazon.! I'm very excited. This is not the typical art that I thought I liked, but I do like it!

  13. Wow wow wow ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it. She reminded me and looks a little bit like Lady Gaga. But I love her too ๐Ÿ™‚ TFS. You are so talented and I love your videos;-) Love and big hugs from Denmark (Europe)

  14. Love your talent Karen, YOUr mixed media girls are Amazing!~ you inspire me to get back to my ART and do more. Thank you so much, love your work. Absolutely fascinating to watch and hopefully learn. LOVE her subtle vibrancy.
