10 Reasons Mixed Media Makes the World a Better Place

By Jenn Mason

It's been 10 years since I purchased my first issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, and I've gone from reader, to contributor, to editor, to editorial director, to my position now as its biggest fan. I've loved every minute of the ride and I'm even more excited by what the Cloth Paper Scissors team will create in the next 10 years. I'm terribly happy to help join in the celebration of 10 magical mixed-media rotations around the sun.



Here are Jenn's top reasons:

1.  It's easy to get started. All you need is some paint, a surface, some found paper or objects, and gel medium. 


2.  You have options. Don't want to paint, make assemblage. Afraid of nails, wood, and liquid nails, wire some beautiful jewelry pieces together. Don't wear jewelry, try felting (machine, wet, or hand!) felting.

3.  It's eco-friendly. You can reuse just about everything in mixed-media art: old clothes, jewelry bits, junk mail, and lots, lots more.

4.  Art Journals: Do I really need to say more??

 5.  Your world gets smaller. Get to know Jane Davenport from Australia, Jen Cushman from Arizona, and Dea Fischer from Canada.


6.  Lots of inspiration.

7.  You're constantly able to improve yourself:  Craftdaily.com



 8.  You have a tribe: Artists &Makers. Learn about people just like you. 


9.  You contribute to the economy. You can't help buying new and interesting supplies.


10.  Without mixed media, there would be no Cloth Paper Scissors
