Every December, Ali Edwards creates an album just for December. She highlights this process in her “December Daily” blog. This year she’s getting a lot simpler by using a 4×6 Album. And, lucky us, she used our TCW246 Swiss Dot stencil to create one of her transparency pages using cream colored acrylic paint.
Ahhh. For all layout artists who love pretty layouts and want to incorporate mixed media and stencils, HERE YA’ GO! Cristin Grönnslett leads the way (from Norway!!) to show us how “less can be more”.
“Messy” can be subtle. It can be color coordinated. It can be harmonious. Don’t be afraid to reach beyond your comfort zone. You can layer, one soft layer after another soft layer. You don’t need to scream “I’m a mixed media artist”, you can whisper it.
Pam Garrison is one of those artists/designers/instructors with whom I’ve kept in touch, because her work is so inspiring. Every once in awhile I get an email with pretty things attached to it. This was one of those days.
Just so inspiring. right? Pull out all of your goodies, lay down some craft paper (brown paper bags?!?), open up that cardboard box in your recycling bin and let loose! And be sure to post what you come up with on our Facebook page.
