Get Your Mixed Media Creative Mojo ON!

Mixed Media is all about experimenting with interesting (and often unusual) combinations of materials, mediums and techniques. Color, texture, images, phrases, dimension and our own unique interpretation and story make our pieces come alive. It is also about the unexpected. And THAT’S what drives us creatively!

The Story behind Linnie Blooms and Linda Barutha

It’s not very often that we see something new in crafting that leaves us completely impressed but that was how Michelle Brown felt when she came across the Linnie Blooms booth at CHA Winter Show 2015. The booth was filled with lovely stitched canvas pieces. Here was a range of alterable, mixed media items, made from canvas and recycled ephemera, with stitching and we didn’t have to do any of the sewing! We only had to decorate them!
