I don't often do much with mixed media. I am lazy for the most part. I love the look, but not the involved processes. I enjoy much simpler things. I was "forced" to create with mixed media this past month for a review of a new book "Exploring the Latest Trends In Mixed Media Arts". This is one of the fun things about being a review team member over at ScrapFriends. I have to stretch my creative muscle. By the way, the book is a great one for finding recipes for all sorts of projects. I think it is best for intermediate to advanced crafters though, unless you are a really motivated beginner.
I have to say I was super excited about one project, a little Starbucks mint tin of all things. You can read all about process here, but to make a long story short, I finally used a copper antiquing kit that I purchased with good intentions of using many many years ago! I was tickled pink at how it turned out!
One more project I created were these pretty cool fabric/paper postcards. The great thing about this project was that I used many of the little scrap and mismatched things that had lying around from other projects (I have a hard time throwing anything out). I haven't actually sent one in the mail yet, but I have always been fascinated by mail art and can't wait to be a part of it. In fact, this reminds me that I should go and do that right now! LOL
Hope you enjoyed these projects!
a hui hou!
