One of the joys of scrapbooking is combining various papers, embellishments, photos, and words in sometimes surprising ways to craft delightful works of art. By adding a little of this and a little more of that, we scrapbookers indulge in the kind of playful creation we enjoyed as children.
Mixed Media Scrapbooking, a new special issue from Creating Keepsakes magazine, encourages this spirit of childlike creative fun. Its 132 pages brim with useful how-tos and
inspiring ideas that dare you to to combine mediums both familiar and novel.
We start out by exploring various scrapbooking styles and helping you identify how mixed media fit in with your own creative approach. From there we jump right in and take a look at all kinds of different mediums, from ink pads to mica flakes, zippers to glass bead gel, oilcloth to book paper. You’ll find accessible guides to using all sorts of products throughout the seven sections of Mixed Media Scrapbooking:
- Ready, Set, Color!
- Brilliant Bling
- Modeling Mediums
- In a Metal Mood
- Accessible Art Mediums
- Fabric and Sewing
- Around the House
Visit our website to peek inside the pages of Mixed Media Scrapbooking, take a quiz to discover your scrapbooking style, watch a video about creating your own resin accents, and print a handy guide to the varieties of ink available to scrapbookers. Then pick up a copy of the issue online or at your local newsstand and prepare to roll up your sleeves and get busy mixing mediums!
