My Favorite Mixed media Gelli Printing Techniques

Today I’m sharing My Favorite Mixed media Gelli Printing Techniques. I just love Gelli printing and if you haven’t tried it yet you should put it on top of your creative to do list. This is one of the best ways to do mixed media and create backgrounds for art journal pages and projects. I really love it!

Scrapbooking Marathon: 1 Sketch, 6 Pages

Remember I told you I’m going back to scrapbooking? Well… I challenged myself to a Scrapbooking Marathon: 1 Sketch, 6 Pages. I created one simple sketch to use as the base for my layouts and wanted to see how many pages I can create from that one sketch. I made 6 pages! It was a really productive day for me and I was so happy I started scrapbooking again!     Scrapbooking Marathon: 1 Sketch, 6 Pages One of the things I noticed is that in the recent layouts I created I really went crazy. Crazy with the amount of embellishments, with too many techniques and too much time. So I wanted to go back to simple scrapbooking that puts the photos in the center and concentrated on the documenting part instead of losing myself in a crazy race for elaborate complicated pages. The layouts I created are just about that. Simple, but interesting, fast but pretty. I let the …

Altered Mixed Media Playing Cards

If you are a mixed media fan then you’ll be excited about the Altered Mixed Media Playing Cards series. In the series I’m altering 52 playing cards with 52 different mixed media techniques. it’s a great way to learn new techniques, experiment with new materials and practice the techniques you already know. It’s not only educational but it’s really fun and much less intimidating than working on art journal pages or canvases because we’re working on a small space.     Altered Mixed Media Playing Cards each of the cards we are altering gets a power word from a list each of us made. Sometimes the card design fits the word and sometimes it’s just the background. In the end we’ll have an inspiring and empowering collection of cards that will not only give us strength but will be a reference book of techniques for future projects. Until now we have done techniques like transfer, stamping, spraying, masking, 3d and …
