Our team recently launched Mixed Media Workshop TV—a series that brings art lessons to you, wherever you choose to learn. As you'll see from Paige Martin's behind-the-scenes report, the fun of creating just flows from the team.
How do you enliven an old pair of jeans? Try a little air brushing and stitch
I'm willing to bet that you could agree with at least one of the following statements: I have too much stuff. I can't afford all the art materials I'd like. I want to make art in a way that has less impact on the environment
Every year, I like to look back at what I've learned (and written about) while experimenting with art techniques and supplies. Here are 13 collage art lessons I've learned (and I hope you have, too).
Last year, I saw a project on Pinterest that showed how to upcycle a toilet paper tube as a container. The open sides of the tube easily fold in to contain whatever's inside, and you can decorate the outside of the roll any number of ways.
My house is full of houses, and never more than during the holidays. From the vintage paper village houses lit up on the tree to the ceramic Dickens village my husband and I started collecting the day after we were married.
The other day I was flattening an empty pasta box for the recycling bin when I thought, "Gee, that little oval window must be good for something."
My social media feeds are full of artwork. Mostly, it's finished
artwork. But a few of my art friends post works in progress. I think
they are very brave to make their fledgling ideas vulnerable to public
scrutiny, however friendly.
Last week, we held a free web seminar with three mixed-media jewelry artists from the ICE Resin design team, Mixed-Media Jewelry with the Stars. The live event was extremely popular; if you missed it, the recording is on the Cloth Paper Scissors community under Free Resources/Online Seminars.
