A fun, FREE group for those who love to do mixed-media and altered art. We will have some free tutorials/videos on occasion, share ideas & have some challenges. Share your work!
What is mixed media?
When you hear mixed media you may immediately get a vision of what it is. However I am hoping to expand that idea. Mixed Media is ANY art that uses more than one type of media – ink & paint, paper & fabric, collage, found objects – it is just a mixture of different items when creating your piece. It can be gothic, steampunk, bright & happy, dark and brooding, bizarre, controlled, free – it is whatever YOU make it.
That being said, you do have to know HOW to use all those different things and the best way is through experimentation. That is what we will be doing here in this group. There are so many incredible, fun products out there to use. Some of my personal favorites are from Ranger, Viva Décor, Crafters Workshop Stencils, & Golden.

Your final project can be anything – an ATC for those who want to start small, a piece for a card, a journal page, a piece to hang on the wall – whatever you are comfortable with or suits what you want to do with it. Sometimes we will make background pieces, sometimes we might make something WITH one of our previous background pieces. Your final project must always use different types of media in order to qualify. New challenges will be posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and prize winners will be announced on the 1st.
