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

What is this mixed media workshop about?

It’s about a style of painting I truly love because you really can’t go wrong with it.
The vibrant colours we are going to use together create a fresh and fun palette that is bound to make you feel happy!

A big focal point is not always needed in a painting. In this chapter I will show you how to create several focal points, forcing you to embrace the painting as a whole.

As circles have always been powerful symbols for a lot of people (I add them everywhere in my art), we will use them to create energy and bounce, with various mediums and tools.

The end result reminds me of mountains of colourful ice-cream! Yum, yum… I know you know what I mean…!

Ready? Put your favourite music on, light up a scented candle and let’s have fun with paint!

Mimi Bondi Profile


I am primarily an ARTIST, totally in love with mixed media!!
My style is abstract with vibrant colours... and my creativity has no bounds!
It goes from paper, to canvas, to digital art...
From layering to collaging, from throwing ink around to painting with my fingers!
As a graphic designer, I also adore my computer and easily lost track of time when I'm designing.
No matter what I'm doing, time just stands still when I'm creating and I love hiding in my studio all day to create - and JUST BE.

Because I love to share and inspire, I am also...

  • An author (you will find my books here)
  • A store owner so I can find all the best mixed media art supplies for you (you will find my store here) and...
  • A teacher (you will find my mixed media workshops here)
  • A graphic designer and illustrator (check out my Secret Stash here, a HUGE online library of instantly downloadable artworks - backgrounds and elements - to use in your mixed media!!)

I hope you find lots of inspiration from my work and website and will feel the love I infuse into each artwork I create 🙂
