MIXED MEDIA ART Tutorial inspired by the October Challenge.

Welcome to a tutorial Monday! We have a very special treat today from one of our Creative Crew Members, Aga Baraniak! Not only did she create a F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C mixed media piece, but she has a whole video showing her creative process! Enjoy!

Our October Challenge is all about celebrating Women – this is Aga´s thoughts:

“There where agent women in Poland during World War II.  Acting in conspiracy, risking their life for Poland. They were my inspiration. Their courage deserves to remain in our minds forever.”


“Watch the video below to see how I created this art piece. It is a step by step tutorial with lots of tips and composition information.”



Below you find detailed pictures:

Aga fussy cut pieces from the Hairloom papers and layered them together to create depth and interest.


Tattered Angels Mists give the background a pop of color.

    Wonderful mixed media piece. I really liked the textures, layering and colours you added. The video was very cool to watch, at a good pace and the captioning was perfect to give those extra details that weren’t quite visual. Thanks for inspiring.
