Using Mixed Media Art And Sharing Your Story


Periscope, Live Stream, Live Stream App,

The Yourdori Girls are all about Sharing The Story

Through Words
                         Through Photographs
                                                              Through Art 

Monday July 11th - Saturday July 16th I am going to join with some talented ladies in encouraging you to share your story through art and journaling.

We will approach this subject with the beginner in mind so that you can start playing with mixed media art and creating fearlessly.

Already started your journey?  Join with us to find new ways to express yourself.  

Using the Periscope Live Stream App five women  share their personal insights of creative expression.  You can ask questions.  You can message them via Twitter. You can find the replays all listed here in this post under each broadcasters information.

Watch live.  Watch Later.  Do Art.

Whenever I share my art journals, journaling bible, or paintings via live stream I usually get a lot of questions.

What is mixed media?  What did you use?

Wouldn't it be fun to do a series and answer some of the questions I get most often?

Wouldn't it be a blast to invite women with different perspectives and ideas to join me?

Creating Fearlessly - 5 women - 6 Days 

Yourdori Girl Dana Sanchez @Yourdori on Periscope and Twitter


As Nancy's partner in craft I am the one who is always creating and she is the one coming up with fantastic photographs and business ideas.  Not that she isn't a fantastic maker too, but over the last year her eyes have morphed into the coolest camera lenses.  Using her cell phone she makes photographic art every day.

For me- I want to play with art supplies everyday.  I almost always have paint on my fingers. And although I still feel like a beginner, I've learned a lot over the last couple of years about how the art supplies I love so much work together.

I will be scoping 10 a.m. PST/ Noon CST about what I mean when I say mixed media, what I use, and how some of my art supplies work together.

This is a huge topic, so we will just be getting our toes wet with information.  If you'd like more information shoot me an email at to be added to our mini-magazine list as well as to receive my outline with more about mixed media art journaling.  You can also email me with any questions you have.  I'd love to get to know you and help you start creating fearlessly!
