I have now finished all the projects from the first part of the book Mixed Media. Titled "Artistic Appetisers", they were all small projects to teach techniques and build confidence. I have had a lot of fun doing them and have already started adapting some of them to my own ideas and interests.
The next section is called "Main Courses" (the book is themed as a cookery book for some reason) and involves larger projects with multiple stages which take longer to do. I have already started getting stuck into the first project which involves several stages and so cannot be completed in a single sitting. I intend to keep making small artworks and inchies every day at the same time as tackling some larger projects. What is more these "main courses" have much more leeway for self-expression, which is exciting.
