Stencilling onto a Mixed Media Canvas

Michelle Brown is back in the Mixed Media Art Studio for the New Year and is having fun painting mixed media canvases. Now that the base layers are complete, it’s time to add some stencilling and other interesting features. Michelle runs through her thinking process for adding this layer, in the video.

Mixed Media Art

Creating Seamless Transitions

Bringing a variety of elements together is what mixed media art is all about. The challenge is how we do this so that our finished artwork looks cohesive and pleasing to look at. The ability to do this is a skill we develop over time and through practice. Here we will look at the three main elements to be considered when putting your mixed media piece together.

Embellishments

Don’t Forget the Embellishments!

Laura Shelton is here to talk about embellishments. We all love them, buy them, and even stockpile them. And Laura was spending way more money than she wanted on them! Until she made a decision; if she wanted embellishments for her mixed media piece or art journal, she was going to make herself.

Decluttering for the New Year; Creative Goals

The start of the New Year is a good time to get organised and so far in our decluttering process, we have reflected on our achievements (or lack of them) for the last 12 months and we have considered which crafts get us excited and which ones we need to leave behind. From here we have been able to determine which craft supplies we need to create the artwork that most excites us. This allows us to move out everything else, giving us space to store our supplies with some order. Now we are ready to look ahead.

Decluttering for the New Year; Reviewing our achievements

The start of a New Year always seems like a good time to reflect in the year just past and set some goals for the year ahead. The art / crafting area of your life is no different; it is needed to balance your life and needs as much attention as your health, job/career and family.
