Thank you for stopping by thinking*through*design a safe place for scrapbookers to get information and answers to questions they may have surrounding the art of paper. We also share a challenge to help you stretch yourself as a paper artist! That is why this special ISSUE of Creating Keepsakes "Mixed Media Scrapbooking" is such a perfect fit for us! We love trying new idea!
Who knows the story of STONE SOUP? Well as a kid it was one of my favorites. I loved the story because I loved how all the villiagers came together to create something that was delicious because one man had a vision!
I love to see other people's art work because it usually is the ingredients they use that inspire me to create! THIS special issue of Creating Keepsakes Mixed Media was like someone brought the stew to my door and said.. "I know you didn't add to the pot, but enjoy the flavors and be inspired!" I felt like every page was a delicacy. My eyes have been feasting on the yumminess that is this issue for days.. and I wanted to give one away so you can say..."I got a free lunch for the eyes!"
Here is the deal.. ALL I want you to do, is to leave a comment saying WHAT mixed media you would love to try!
I am a BIG fan of fabric. I also quilt! Going to the fabric store is ALMOST as much fun as going to the LSS and picking out paper. Before my scrap-booking days, I actually was a "hard core" cross-stitcher/embroidery girl. In fact, I almost opened a store that focused on cross-stitch. My love the concept of mixing fabric and stitching onto my layout. All that said, I can tell you I love to create layouts with stitching on them, in fact I have noticed lately that most of my layouts have been stitched. Another thing that I love about stitching... is how it can be used in your design as a grounding technique. You can also check out the Thanks Living Challenge at Club CK that focuses on different design concepts every month. This month was on Grounding and Anchoring your layouts and it just so happens I used stitching to illustrate how great using stitching on your layout can unify and bring a layout together.
I know for me, I want to see a good peek so here is a link to get an idea of the amazing ingredients in this superb Scrapbook Soup! Check it out here
