MJZ on Amazon.com: I stumbled onto Mimi’s videos on YouTube and was instantly addicted to her art and methods. IF you want to try working with mixed media, or even just acrylic paints, you can not find a better book. It’s inspiring and the images you learn to create are gorgeous! Creating art should not be stressful and with Mimi it isn’t. Pick up a copy of this book and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. I’ve taken years of art lessons, but Mimi is the one who really freed me to create without fear. Forget the other books, once you create one of the pieces out of this book, you won’t need to ever buy another one.

No Shenanigans! Mixed media tutorials from start to finish by Mimi Bondi

This mixed media book is perfect for you if you…

• are a beginner artist (no experience needed!) who wants clear instructions
• feel stuck creatively and would like to try a new style
• don’t want to, or can’t, buy a huge amount of art supplies
• think that painting is hard or you are not the creative type
• feel overwhelmed by the amount of information out there
• want to really learn how an artist creates her paintings, with genuine tutorials (no fluffy or distracting content)

No Shenanigans! Mixed media book with tutorials from start to finish by Mimi Bondi

What is this mixed media book all about?

This book is about helping YOU get into painting and mixed media quickly and easily, even if you have never painted before!
Everything is clearly explained, the projects are fun and I refused to include any ‘fluff’ content that would distract from that goal.
Now you understand why this book is called ‘No Shenanigans’, which sums up my approach to painting and life in general!

What is in the book?

I designed this book based on what I want (and what I think most learning artists want) from an mixed media book:

  • A short introduction with simple tips and advice
  • Interesting tutorials in the artist’s own style, with simple and clear explanations on exactly what to do and how, step by step
  • Limited/inexpensive art supplies needed to do all the tutorials
  • Lots of inspiration and fun along the way!

and what I didn’t want:

  • Pages of lifestyle advice or yoga poses (interesting, yes, but not when that’s a third or half of the book)
  • Ponderings from other artists (I buy a book from an artist because I like THEIR style, not other people’s)
  • Lengthy articles about various art supplies available out there (there are so many and unless a specific item is used in a tutorial in the book, then I don’t need to fill up my brain with unnecessary information until I am ready)

And so… My “No Shenanigans” book:

  • Gives you 110 pages of relevant content, with 450 full colour photos
  • Shows you how to create 6 completely different paintings, from start to finish (in my style), step by step
  • Only requires limited supplies so you can start learning fun and interesting techniques straight away
  • Is suitable for everyone as no painting or drawing experience is required to do the tutorials
  • Will build your confidence as an artist and inspire you to try new things
  • Is lightweight so you can carry it with you anywhere, with matt paper so you can write notes directly on the pages if you wish

So… what are you waiting for?
Start your journey as an artist today, with my help!

Helen Cook:
I had never painted with mixed media and acrylics and was excited to learn after watching many of Mimi’s tutorials. I absolutely loved ‘No Shenanigans’ from the moment I saw it. The tutorials are clear, colourful and inspiring and I would wholeheartedly recommend it, especially to complete beginners to learn to create the stunning projects step by step with ease. The instructions are thorough, simple and beautifully illustrated and imbued with Mimi’s friendly and relaxed style of teaching. With minimal art supplies I learned how to make beautiful backgrounds and completed pages that were so pretty and great fun to do. A year later I have embarked on bigger canvases as a result of growing in confidence having learned so much from the tutorials and generally playing and experimenting with stencils, stamps and seeing the layers evolve. I would never have known where to start before. Thank you Mimi for sharing your amazing skills and your ability to teach and inspire! ‘No Shenanigans’ is exactly what it says, straightforward, no nonsense, and for me a life changer, I am so glad I bought it.

Reviews

  1. Just LOVE this book!! Great EASY tutorials to follow with step by step pictures!! The pictures are so pretty to look at also! I mean you get a smile just looking at the colorful and pretty cover! A wonderful book for those that just started painting with acrylics! I’m sure glad I got my copy!!

  2. This book is amazing!!! It is full of beautiful color pictures and step by step instruction on how to let loose and let your muse take over and create beautiful mixed media art. It is so helpful for beginners and experienced artist alike.

  3. I’m so happy I purchased this book. It is so easy to follow and I love it! I am a beginner mixed media artist and this book has been me much more confidence in my art making and creativity. I totally recommend it. 🙂

  4. I just love Mimi Bondi’s book! It is so full of joy, humor, inspiration and sunshine. And the step by steps is awesome. I would recommend anyone to buy this book. Anita, Norway

  5. It’s a wonderful book, well explain to begin to do mix media ! I love it a lot, thanks Mimi.

  6. This is a fabulous book for every artist and every skill level! Love her positivity. Ian loving the outcome of my first 2 pieces!

  7. This book does it all. Mimi has an extraordinary way with color. So much fun to follow along with her lessons. This book is a must-have for any serious artist.

  8. This is a great book to kick start your creative journey. Mimi takes you through every step and builds your confidence with her beautiful techniques. She is an inspiration!!!

  9. No Shenanigans is the best beginner Mix media book I have ever seen. I love it.

  10. Very happy with this book. Great pictures & easy to follow instructions.

  11. Mimi has outdone herself with this delightful mixed media book, it contains step by step photo’s of every step with instructions as well, it is so clear a beginner would be able to start straight away, whether it is on a canvas or art journalling, with minimal supplies. It gives complete confidence that you will be able to ‘do as the photo’ and be really pleased with the outcome. There are 6 projects in total plus some delicious eye candy at the back of the book for further encouragement. Mimi is a very clear, gentle voice in a sometimes bewildering internet world, plus you can purchase e-classes of the 6 projects as an added bonus. Delightful, colourful, and a wonderful addition to my art world. Well done Mimi.

  12. I am so glad I purchased this book! Mimi Bondi’s positive and encouraging step-by-step instructions are very clear and easy to follow and there are photos to go along with each step. I love mixed media, but spend a lot of time staring at the blank pages of my art journal, not to mention having been terrified to work on a canvas. It’s very easy to open this book and just start painting, ending up with a piece of art, (yes, even on a canvas) that you’ll love. The photos in the book are just gorgeous and the colors are so happy.
    I can’t say enough about how wonderful “No Shenanigans!” is. I believe anyone who buys it will love it!

  13. This is a wonderful book, which I have not been able to put down. Mimi Bondi explains and shows each step very clearly, and for a beginner in this area, I truly thank her. The pictures are beautiful, and color, oh, so much wonderful color in each project, it just makes you feel good to see what she has done and is willing to share. I do not like to pre-order anything, but I took a chance, and I am not disappointed at all, actually over joyed.

  14. I am so happy that I bought this book. I am a beginner painter and couldn’t find my way to get a canvas completed that I liked. Mimi Bondi leads you through, step by step, to complete a wonderful canvas (or art journal page) at your own speed. The book has beautiful close-up pictures showing you each technique. I have completed four chapters and can’t wait to start the next one. This is one of the best purchases I have made all year.

  15. Mimi has created an beautiful and easy to follow mixed media art book. One of the best step by step books out there. So colorful, like her. She comes across as if you are sitting right next to her. Whether you are just a beginner or advanced, you will love the art you create with Mimi.

  16. I purchased your book several days ago, & just wanted to tell you how much I love it! It’s one of the best mixed media books I’ve purchased, & I’ve bought a lot. Also thank you for your generosity for posting free tutorials on YouTube. I am fairly new to mixed media, & they have really helped. Have a wonderful day!

    • Thank you so much Alison!!

    Loved this book and the way that Mimi approaches art. Her how to’s are easy to understand and I love the section on products and how to use them. She demystified them for me. This book is a must have for anyone wanting to know more about mixed media and painting.

    • Thank you so much Jaci! It’s so helpful to hear which parts you liked best and how the book has helped you. Thank you for your positive review 🙂 xx mimi

    I love Mimi’s carefree style and after watching her videos I purchased her book. It takes away the intimidation of starting a blank page. I also love bright, vibrant colours and when you add finger painting to the mix, I am one happy lady. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels they have no creative bone in their body. These tutorials will help bring out the artist within. Thank you for being so inspiring Mimi.

    • Thank you SO much Anna, your comment makes me truly happy!! xx mimi

  19. I love the detail and ease of her pictures and instructions. She really make it an easy and enjoyable process. Although I am an artist for many years I feel even a beginner can take on her projects yet her book is enjoyable for seasoned artist.

  20. Absolutely love this book! One of the best mixed media books that I have bought, & I have bought a lot. Her directions are clear with lots of step by step lovely pictures.

  21. OMG the day I got this book was the best.. I read it from cover to cover while having being at the hairdressers… Mimi has nailed it on the head.. I have learnt so much from this book and I highly recommend this book to every one even beginners.. The beautiful step by step pictures are amazing and so detailed.. so go on and purchase this wonderful book.. I have a few mixed media books but I keep going back to Mimi book again and again. and have even recommended this book to all my friends here in NZ

  22. This is a wonderful book! The paintings are beautiful and the tutorials are clear and easy to follow! I recommend if you are new to painting, need inspiration, or if you are simply switching to mixed media.

  23. I stumbled onto Mimi’s videos on YouTube and was instantly addicted to her art and methods. IF you want to try working with mixed media, or even just acrylic paints, you can not find a better book. It’s inspiring and the images you learn to create are gorgeous!

  24. I am so happy to have this book. I had no idea how to begin painting with acrylics and the first chapter made it so easy for me to start. I look at my finished product and am amazed at how easy it was with the step by step instructions. I am so excited to start chapter 2. Thank you Mimi Bondi for opening up the artsy side of me.

  25. I absolutely loved this book. Mimi’s instruction and pictures were excellent. It was so easy to follow. One of the best books I have purchased. The end result was amazing and fun to do!! You won’t be disappointed!

  26. Lovely easy to follow instructions, that are more like suggestions, that you can follow exactly or start using your own colour combinations from the first project, making this book completly inclusive to beginner and more confident creators alike. The quality of the photos and the book itself are wonderful, and the personal contact and support on the Facebook page, with Mimi and other artists make your creative journey wonderfully achievable. Thank you Mimi.

    • Thank you so much for your very helpful feedback Jan! 🙂 mimi

  27. I truly believe this is an instruction book with a difference. I have SO MANY books on creating art but in all honesty, I think Mimi’s book is a unique “personalised” creating process, to the point that it becomes a conversation with you as you proceed through the projects. The projects are set out but I found that as I tried each, I gained knowledge, experience and confidence. Within the pages I turned forwards, and then backwards, I tried this idea with that technique, and slowly I watched my creations and abilities grow with Mimi’s expert help. And don’t forget, if you do have a question, she is always on hand through her facebook page. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK!

  28. wonderfully colorful, with clear instructions, and maybe best of all, all done with art supplies already living in my closet just waiting for their chance to star.. I just ordered mimi’s secret stash book, which i’m eagerly awaiting. so glad i found her.

    • Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Lois! I’m so glad you already had the supplies as I tried to keep them to the bare minimum to do all the tutorials in the book 🙂

    • Dear Helen, that is so exciting and I am so glad to have enabled you on your creative journey! Thank you SO much for your lovely feedback 🙂 xxx

  31. I have been exploring art journaling and mixed media painting for a few years and “No Shenanigans!” is the best guidebook around. And believe me I’ve read many. Mimi’s detailed instructions paired with her e-course and her generous YouTube videos helped me create art journal pages and canvases unlike any I have done before. I have found my style as well as my confidence through Mimi’s hard work and gentle comments. If you want to learn how to create beautiful mixed media art– go get this book!!!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words Renee 🙂 xxo mimi

    This is a great book. Once I got it, I couldn’t wait to get started on my first canvas. It’s great to have a picture with each step and a good explanation on what to do. The process was so easy to follow and lots of fun. I couldn’t believe that I actually ended up with a painting I’m happy to display on the wall. In fact, I liked the technique so much, that I made ATCs, art cards and envelopes (mail art) using the same technique. Can’t wait to try the next painting in the book. Thank you, Mimi, for an inspiring and supportive book!

    • I am so excited to hear this Anita, thank YOU so, so much! xxo
