Experimenting with Small Mini Mixed Media Canvasses

Standard

Small Experiments with Mini Mixed Media CanvasesAnjuli Johnson constantly tries to push through her fears to discover and develop her talents, meet new people, and learn from those around her. She loves all things mixed media- paper, paint, pens, wire, gears; clay… the list goes on and on. It’s not enough for her to stick to one or two tried and true techniques– she always feels the need to try nearly everything she sees.

As a self-taught artist, constant learning and experimentation are a necessity for her to become the accomplished artist she dreams of. However it is not her to frantically moves from one medium to the next in a mad rush to try and learn as much as possible. She acknowledges and confesses that it’s not only her who has a room full of craft supplies, waiting to be used for the first time.  Besides she has learned things about so many mediums by working on her mini’s first- paper clay, ink, multiple ways to paint with acrylics, collage, modeling paste, gel medium, and lots of other things.

And even though what she tries turns out to be terrible, she doesn’t sweat too much. The simple reason is that she doesn’t waste expensive materials on a piece that she might ruin through her inexperience. Having begun as a scrapbooker, it has been an evolutionary process ever since.
