Buried Treasure with Seth Apter

Today Seth Apter is hosting his sixth annual Buried Treasure feature, where he encourages bloggers to re-post a favorite project from the past and he shares links so we might all discover some forgotten or missed posts.  Take time to check out Seth's gorgeous blog… it is chock full of art, eye candy, and inspiration.  If you have a chance to take one of Seth's classes, don't hesitate!


Mixed Media Art Membership Group

Have you heard about the Mixed Media Art Membership Group? It's a monthly membership that I host that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.  

The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.

Thanks for the visit!  If we're not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter… whichever social media platforms you prefer.

    What an awesome piece Marjie! so glad you posted this one as I have now had my Gelatos for two months and had been shy to use them- you have inspired me to break them out and have some fun!
    I really love the way your colors are blended and the blues truly are Dreamy! “)
