Can you believe it's December, Mixed Media Society member?!
It's shocking to me how fast time goes anymore. It just keeps flyin'! Today I've got a new project for you that I think you're gonna love. We're creating a beautiful Menorah in acrylics and fountain pen inks just in time for Hannukah.

To help me out with the drawing portion of this project, I used this awesome chandelier stencil that I've had sitting around FOR YEARS! I know you likely won't have one of these, so I did a little quick Amazon research to see what I could find that might be similar and found tons of options.
As always, use whatever supplies you love and have on hand. This is what I used...

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
