I've discovered I LOVE mixed media. It's so creatively freeing. Who'd have thought how satisfying it is to make a whole piece of art in one square inch, for instance?

These inchies - and yes, each one is one square inch - are made with sticky back canvas, dictionary page, stamps, ink, paint, markers, glossy medium, cotton and a rhinestone. Whew! I sometimes don't use that many things on a 12x12 layout, LOL!!!
What's really cool is that mixed media isn't all abstract and goopy. It's just as much about the form as the mediums. It's about playing and using products together that you wouldn't normally such as paper and canvas here.
Be sure to check out all the awesome mixed media projects brought to you every month in Scrapbook News and Review. You'll see my name in that section quite often nowadays!!!! I'd love to share my MM adventures with you.
Now I'm proud to consider myself a mixed media artist!
p.s. Check out my sketch this week on Sketchy Thursdays! I'm rather proud of it. ~grin~
