Hey Creatives! Here’s a quick guide to mixed media! Using this two page spread let’s talk about several techniques and things you can do to jumpstart (or refresh) your mixed media love!
First of all, get some color on the page – it doesn’t matter how. What do you love to use? Acrylic? Watercolor? Markers? Whatever the medium or combination just get some color on the page! You can use a canvas, watercolor or mixed media paper, it doesn’t really matter just get started!
Next step – what will you do? Do you draw? Need a stencil? Like to collage? Here’s a big tip… ANYTHING GOES! I added one of my die cuts, but I could easily have done one or more of the others. The key to mixed media is to use whatever tools and mediums you have in combination to make it all come together.
The details- are you art journaling? Need something to write about? How about a quote, song lyrics, a scripture? No rules, just write…literally. I think we tend to overthink these things.
Bonus – add things you love. Do you love glitter? Faries? Buttons? Does it fit your project? Do you just love the way it looks? Then do it. Art should be fun and mixed media is freeing because we break all the rules! There are SO MANY WAYS and so many combinations to do mixed media! So just do it! Have fun with it and if you need more tips be sure to join me on Mixed Media Mondays, every Monday night at 8 CST on Facebook, RitaBarakat1.
