Karen, I'm so glad you got back to doing art again because it's quite beautiful. Keep up the great work! I certainly love it. And no, you shouldn't be embarrassed at all, you should be proud of your work, and proud to show it. And I wonder, does not being a "professional" artist, or not a ...

Hi Karen. Thank you for your comment. No, I haven't gone to any art & craft shows with them. I really haven't shown my work, except on my blog and a few art sites. I had two pieces of work in two charity auctions. I had looked at your work a few days ago, and admire it very much. It's so beautif...

I'm ready to show another collage

This is a collage I did a while back, and one of my favorites. I used light spackle and shoe polish on this, as well as strips of rusted fa
ic and many other items.

Hi Akeia. I'm new here too. Even so, welcome to this site. I looked at your mask, and I really like it. Especially your use of the feathers. Very impressive. I do altered art/mixed media art, and I like your style. Good job! Please post more of your art, I'd like to see it.

Hi Linda. Thanks for your kind comment about me having a knack for collages. Interestingly enough, I was very fearful of doing collage for a long time. Crazy but true. I finally tried to face some of my (irrational) fears about it, and that really helped. Funny how that works....facing one's fears, ...

Thanks for all the comments here. You are all right, I'm not alone. I also think I'm not the only artist who deals with some insecurity issues. I think I'm in good company there, although some might not want to admit it. Right now I'm reading the book Art and Fear, which is interesting. Anyone else ...

My altered art/mixed media blog

Here's the URL to my blog. http://valsalteredheartjourney.blogspot.com/ I update it regularly and try to keep it current. I mostly do altered art and mixed media art. I tend to use items, products, and supplies that are not meant for art. My mantra is -- How can I use this in my art??? Please take a...

Thanks Joe. The background is wallpaper (neat wallpaper) from a sample book. The large rectangle is a large paint chip, which I distressed by sanding. Then I etched the words into it with a sharp awl, then rubbed with the own shoe polish, to make them visible. The three small windows were already in...

Thank you. Part of what achieved these colors was rubbing
own paste shoe polish on. I use shoe polish a lot in my work.

Hello Erika. Nice to meet you too. Thanks for posting a reply. Interestingly enough, I looked at your personal album this afternoon. I love your art, it's so beautiful. I'm drawn to sculpture. Years ago I worked with Sculpey polymer clay, and used to make little animals and figures. All cutesy kind ...

New member here, and I do Mixed Media

Oh my gosh, this is more than a bit scary and intimidating to me. I do have my own art blog at http://valsalteredheartjourney.blogspot.com/ , and I get a fair amount of comments, but....all of them are kind and complimentary. (If you take a look, please scroll down to some previous posts, because my...

Hello. I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Valerie and I just joined yesterday, and got some art work uploaded to my album today. I'm an altered art/mixed media artist and have been for 4 1/2 years now. Although I wonder if I'm out of my element and/or league in this venue and on this website. ...

To Dale

Wow, what a touching and amazing story. In my humble opinion, God reached out to you and saved your life at that dangerous and decisive moment. I believe He does those kind of miraculous things often. He gave you a second chance, and I believe you should honor Him by persuing your dream of being an ...
