Short but informative
This is a simple step by step demo of collage and painting over it. Looking at artists work, it was a little intimidating, however this shows once you have the technique, how simple it is! Very important are the tools that are required and these are stated here. The quick video also helps a great deal. Review by Sharon (Posted on 8/10/2014)
Makes me believe I can do it!
As usual, Julie takes an intimidating subject and breaks it down in ways that are easy to understand. More importantly, she takes the fear out of it, especially since I'm new to mixed media. It is a simple, quick look at beginning techniques - exactly what I was looking for. So worth the $2. Review by lisa (Posted on 6/3/2014)
So Nice!
Being new to mixed media arts, this, and the other lessons, were the perfect thing to learn tips and tricks. Great intro to supplies, as well.

Love this art series!

Very Nice!
I am newer to mixed media and this was just right for helping me learn tricks and tips. Review by MaryAnne (Posted on 12/1/2013)
So inspiring!
I want to help others make an idea of what they are buying. This is a simple, but yet very inspiring lesson. It is a lesson, exactly what it claims it is, don't expect too much out of it, but if you're a beginner, you're going to find this fascinating. In the PDF there are presented the supplies you can use to create this beauty-like face, and the best part is that you don't have to use all of them or to used them only, you can put your own finger print and create something gorgeous. My version after I've bought this lesson can be seen here:

I will definitely buy more art lessons, if I find them attractive. A good detailed description of each one helps me make up my mind whether I want to buy it or not.
