This tutorial is part of the “No Shenanigans” mixed media tutorial book and full video course!

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

This video tutorial is suitable 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)

What is this mixed media tutorial about?

This is the easiest and most fun technique I know to get an amazing raised texture on a painting…
Let me show you how to create it without any tools or mediums: all you need is a sheet of paper, some paint and your trusty hands!

You are going to love seeing this beautiful abstract piece full of detail, colour and shine develop in front of you!

What I enjo so much about this style of abstract art ist that, because there is no primary focal point, you can truly let your mind wander, using your imagination to interpret what is front of you.

Simply stop and study the texture, admire how the light reflects and how the colours draw you in…
Let yourself relax… Ahhh…

Hang on, first we need to actually create this gorgeous dreamy painting! Ready???

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 🙂
