This article is written by Tamara Dinius

Fun altered art project

This video will demonstrate mixed media techniques using bargain bin finds. The techniques shown can be used on multiple  substrates to create unique gifts for any occasion.

 
All you need is a cheap substrate, add some paints, stamping and stencilling to decorate your altered art. Here I’ve used Drink Tags from a local craft warehouse
