A new offering - Breathe - mini mixed media art lesson

Breathe - mixed media art lesson Jane Hinchliffe.png

By popular request, I’m excited to share this sweet mixed media art lesson with you that I think you’re going to love. This lesson has instant and lifetime access with downloadable videos.

Let me show you how to create your own miniature portrait on an old book cover and enjoy adding meaningful layers to create a piece that would look beautiful in your home or perhaps given as a gift to a loved one.

Within this mixed media art lesson, learn how to bring your ‘lost treasures’ to life with forgotten jewellery, pieces of lace, broaches, buttons etc. and then combine them with a vintage feel hand painted portrait - reminiscent of miniature portraits from the Victorian period.

Delight - a sneak peek into my journal

Would you like to join me in celebrating YOUR life this Summer? 

So, here's a little sneak peek at my art journal! I'm loving exploring 'Delight' using mixed media and other juicy ideas for discovery.  In the example shown, I've handwritten various things about life that bring me delight such as birdsong, a glass of wine out on the patio on a warm Summer's evening, family picnics etc.

Delight - the dictionary definition is: pleasure, joy, satisfaction, happiness, ecstasy.

We all have far too much to do these days with various of stresses and strains but you know sometimes, having a look at our lives and the many things that delight us can magically transform us and leave us feeling uplifted, renewed and grateful for what we DO have and also more equipped to deal with the here and now.

Also, these days I find I'm really curious about my childhood, special days like my wedding day [sigh] and the birth of our children - 'my boys' [aww]...  However, it's not just the 'once in a lifetime' things I remembering, it's also the everyday happenings that touch my heart and it feels wonderful to be able to capture snippets of my life past and present in a way that feels creative, meaningful, inspiring and playful.

More information and registration details.

Have a wonderful weekend...

Love resides here

At this time of year our attention seems to inevitably be on Christmas looming and all the things on our 'to do list'.  This year though, I'm wanting to also focus on making my home inviting and relaxed for the gathering of friends and family.  My home is certainly no 'show home' but still with a few touches here and there I think it will feel welcoming, loving and cosy.

This new painting that I've just completed is all about this very topic.  It is called 'Love resides here' and is available in my shop.  With a tendency of being a bit of an 'A type' personality, I don't want to get so caught up in the perfection of it all, instead I want to be able to gather friends and family knowing that not only is my home welcoming but my heart too.

Other years, I think I've steered clear of having many friends or family over for fear of my house not living up to their expectations.  Well, not this year...

love resides here By the way, for all my American friends and family, have a wonderful Thanksgiving today.
