Shy Art Doll Mixed Media Tutorial | Art Journal

by | Blog - Tutorials | 2 comments

Hello my Creative Friend!

Do you want to know how I created this beautiful shy art doll mixed media art journal page?
It was easy, let me show you how I did it – with the help of 2 files from Mimi Bondi’s Secret Stash:

Shy Art Doll Background Collage Paper 343 Mimi Bondi Personal Use ONLY
Art Doll Mix Background Collage Paper 349 Mimi Bondi Personal Use ONLY.

If you love these, definitely check out the rest of the Doll Face Collection here 😉

And I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below – don’t be shy!

With Love and Sunshine – from the Central Coast in Australia 🙂

  1. I love all the happy colors you use in your art! I also love the printables so much. I’m looking for a printer, but I’m overwhelmed with all the possibilities and options. Will you please give a few tips on what kind of printer/ink you use? I can’t wait to print a bunch of your papers and jump right in to using them! Thanks in advance.

      Awww thank you so much Cindy!! You can print them on any kind of printer.
      I have a laser printer at home but if you don’t, you can save the files on a USB stick and get them printed at a copy shop like Kinko’s.
      If you use an inkjet printer at home, you may want to add a thin layer of gel medium over your print after glueing it down (but that’s only for inkjet, and only if you plan on adding any wet/liquid media on top like watercolour. Acrylic paint should be fine).
      Hope this helps – let me know if you have any other questions 🙂
