The Evolution of a Mixed Media Collage

I’ve been on a real bird kick lately, and this mixed media piece evolved from a poem I wrote and a photo my husband took in Yosemite National Park, California. I entitled the poem, “Broken Promises.”

About JoDee Luna

Raised with a paintbrush, crochet needle, or sculpting dough in hand, JoDee inherited her creative mind from her Italian mother, who JoDee sees as a master of living comfortably with shifting creative rhythms. JoDee’s own creative shifts took her to the Netherlands as an early adult, where she worked as a leader with a creative arts urban mission. Her artistic quests led and comforted her through a divorce, a long period of single parenthood, a journey back to school, and a career as a teacher and professional development trainer. During her free time today, you will find JoDee gardening, blogging, dabbling in mixed media, crafting hand-made masks, writing, shooting photos, arranging flowers, dancing, or collaborating with her daughters on any of the above. During the day, she throws her whole creative being into developing media-rich learning environments to spark a passion for the power of words and images in students. When she’s not creating, she is most likely sleeping...and dreaming about the next project. Her book, Refrain from the Identical: Insight and Inspiration for Creative Eclectics, features helpful hints and inspirational reflections for artistic multi-taskers and her creativity website,, provides diy projects and inspirational posts.
