Mixed Media Magnets Available Online


I participate in several art fairs/festivals every year and one of the most popular items are my mixed media magnets.  People love them because they make wonderful small gifts.  They are a way to own a small piece of original art without spending tons of money.

I've been asked numerous times if I sell them online and I never have (mainly due to laziness).  But, since it's "gift-giving" time, I figure that I would put a few up here that can be ordered.  I am going to try to get them up on Etsy in the next few months, but for right now, I thought this would be the quickest and easiest way to make them available.

The magnets are $6 each or three for $15.  Because we are so close to Christmas, I will make every attempt to get them in the mail within 24 hours.  I'll mail them in a padded envelope.  However, if you live in or near Gainesville, we can meet at a nearby Starbucks so that you may receive them more quickly and avoid the postage.

So, take a look......if you would like to place an order, send your request to  Please indicate the "Group Number" and which magnet(s) you would like.  I'll send you an invoice from Square so that you may pay with a credit card.  If you would prefer to use Paypal, I can send you a Paypal invoice instead.

Like I mentioned earlier, I think this is the quickest way to make the magnets available now.  In the near future, I will put them up on Etsy.

Have a wonderful day,

Creative Heart Monday - Abstract Background How To

Happy Creative Heart Monday!

Today, I'm doing something a little different.  I'm not painting a "finished" piece.

Many times, I use painted papers, that I create myself, to incorporate into my art.  Sometimes these are created on the Gel Press plate and sometimes I go a little further.....adding inks, etc.

In this video, I'm making a new background/collage paper on 18" X 24" mixed media paper.  When I'm finished with this background, I will scan it so that I can print out parts to use as background on my mdf panels or collage pieces.

Here we go...........................


18" X 24" mixed media paper
acrylic paint
Gel Press prints

gel medium
FW Daler Rowney Acrylic Inks
Bombay India Inks
Fineline Bottles filled with black and white paint
Ranger Distress Ink

Check out my Etsy store.  I've added a lot of new items!

Have a great Monday and a wonderful week.
