So Many Mixed-Media Ideas!

If you’re reading this you’re probably familiar with the plethora of mixed-media art techniques that Cloth Paper Scissors celebrates. Collage, art journaling, jewelry, and more–we love it all! If you’ve read even one issue, you’ve likely taken away several tips and ideas that you’re applying to your art. So imagine having an entire year’s worth of techniques at your fingertips. Now add to that 13 episodes of The Mixed Media Workshop and a collection of enticing art supplies to play with. Feeling excited yet?

Mixed-media art by Judy Wise |
Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Cloth Paper Scissors and learn mixed-media art techniques from talented artists such as Judy Wise. “Making dimensional paintings in plaster is both easy and fun,” Judy says in the January/February 2013 issue. “Joint compound is a breeze to scribe and carve into, and the effects you can achieve by painting over a toned background are dramatic.”
Mixed-media houses by Alice Berg
Alice Berg shows you how to make colorful mixed-media houses (May/June 2013 issue). She encourages you to use the wooden houses as a canvas: “Cut some wood, paint some paper, turn on some music, and get lost in the creative zone. Enjoy the process as much as the product.”

In the Cloth Paper Scissors 10th Anniversary Collection, you’ll have all that and more: step-by-step techniques, appealing projects from popular and up-and-coming mixed-media artists, and inspiration galore. I browsed through a couple of issues and here’s what I found:

In the January/February 2013 issue, learn how to:
• Make a tunnel book
• Put together a slideshow of your artwork
• Carve dimensional paintings

In the March/April 2013 issue, gain an understanding of:
• Transparent watermarks
• The economics of teaching art
• Using gesso and Venetian plaster to create texture

The list goes on! The Cloth Paper Scissors 10th Anniversary Collection is on sale for a record-low price, along with many other exclusive mixed-media kits that you can find in the Interweave store. They include books, DVDs, and cool supplies for making everything from sugar skull art to jewelry. One of my favorite series is the “Getting Started” kits for beginners in painting, mixed-media jewelry, bookmaking, collage, and printmaking. These kits are a great way to dip your toe into a new type of art that you’ve been dying to try. Get your favorite collection and go make some art!
