Don’t Be Distressed!!

Distressing your art can be so much fun! It’s a great way to let off some frustration, or just to get out some of your more aggressive feelings. Or it can be a fun way to play with darker colors you generally don’t use.

We have a wonderful guest today who rarely uses dark colors and whose mixed media creations are famous for being bright and cheery!

But she’s joined us today to demonstrate her amazing versatility and to show us she can distress, too! Pulling out her darker paints, but giving us and enlightening and uplifting message today is DecoArt’s Education Cordinator:

Tracy Weinzapfel
