Secret Stash Book: Handpainted backgrounds for mixed media (FREE SHIPPING)


Prices on my website are in Australian Dollars

My Secret Stash Mixed Media book is a collection of 98 (YES - 98!!) hand painted mixed media backgrounds to tear and use in your own art or to turn into a ready-made art journal (paint & doodle on the pages)!!




This isn’t a regular book!!! Oh nooo...
This is your PRIVATE and SECRET collection of 98 deliciously colorful mixed media pages,
hand painted by Mimi Bondi - Ready to add sunshine to your journal pages,
art tags, stationery, paintings and more!

... It’s really up to you!




What is this mixed media backgrounds book all about?

My Secret Stash book is about simply creating more art!
I have so many art pages and paintings that one day, while I was enjoying all the details and texture of my journal spreads and of paintings hanging on my studio walls, I started thinking...
How can I make all this arty goodness go even further? How can help others feel inspired to create more?

And then a light bulb went on... Bling!

I got the idea of creating a book that isn't really 'a book'... (But let's call it a book anyway to make things simple)

• A book to keep as a collection of pretty and colourful papers you can tear and use in your own art...
• A book you can use as a ready-made art journal if you don't have the time or the will to create your own...
• A book to lift up your spirits at all times, no matter what page you are on...

So I decided to create a huge collection of mixed media backgrounds, all taken from my own art journal pages and canvas paintings... And now, I am very excited to present to you my one-of-a-kind mixed media backgrounds book, called Secret Stash!

Other than 4 or 5 pages of text (which you can paint over) you will find a whopping 98 pages filled with rich and deliciously colorful mixed media art!!

There is absolutely nothing to obscure the art (no text, no page numbers) and all pages have been left 'plain' on purpose, to allow you to use them in any way you wish 🙂

The cover has a matt velvet finish and the internal pages are printed on matt paper, ready to be painted, written on (even a Bic pen will write smoothly) or just torn apart!!!


What can you do with these mixed media backgrounds?


Here are just a few ideas...

• Cut parts of a page by hand, with scissors or a craft punch and use the pieces in collages, to decorate your art tags and greeting cards, to make your happy mail even happier or...

• Tear a whole page out & use it as an art journal background

• Turn this book into YOUR art journal: add gesso or paint directly onto the pages, draw or paint boxes to write your thoughts and inspiring quotes, add doodles, glue photos and images for added interest, use stencils and stamps to embellish the pages further (you can even paint the covers!)...

The sky is the limit!

    Mimi’s book is absolutly adorable! It is full of sunshine and happiness. The pages in the book are of very high quality and every page is a gorgeous artwork.I’m going to get problems using the pages, I’ll really just have it as inspiration and to be able to sit in peace and quiet with a cup of coffee and just enjoy every page over and over again.
    Thank you Mimi Bondi for bringing sunshine to my life ♥

    I absolutely adore this book. At first I couldn’t bring myself to tear or cut the book but after I got over the librarian in my head Lol, I have used it. If I have to name my top three things I can’t do without this would be on the list. Thanks Mimi.

    • Mimi Bondi

      So glad you kicked the librarian’s butt Lorraine 😉 It was made to be torn and played with so good on you for doing just that!! xx mimi
