Lesson 7. Mixed Media With Bling

"Whether you are new to acrylics or something of an old hand, these lessons will definitely provide several 'a-ha' moments. The explanations of the different mediums is especially helpful as the plethora of them available can be daunting. Perhaps the best take-away lesson from the entire course is to have fun experimenting, let go of the idea of having to create a 'perfect' picture and just play! Very well paced and easy to follow, I am sure I will refer back to this course repeatedly."
