Mixed Media

Hey All! Hope you are staying warm and safe in this crazy weather hitting a lot of throughout the states.

So I have been talking a lot about mixed media in the past months and my plan is to do this more and more. It has quickly become a love and passion for me, reigniting things I loved about creating from when I was younger and learning how to mesh that back into what I do with my scrapping and card making. It also has given me the freedom to create art, just for the sake of creating art. No matter how big or small.

My latest little art piece is an ATC I created for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine's front page. It was part of my Workshop Wednesday post and you can find a step x step tutorial HERE. If you stop by to see I would love for you to leave a comment for me there too.

Home is Where My Heart Is

This little creation took me about 35 minutes to create and that was including dry time. can't beat that!! What I really love about creating ATCs is you can easily do one every day to just get some art play in. I am seriously going to start trying to do one a day. How cool would that be to have this collection at the end of the year reflecting different things going on, feelings I had, and just what was in my creative thoughts at the time.

With all this passion in me, I have started seeking out mixed media blogs to visit and be inspired by. One of the blogs I found was Mandy's. She has a fantabulous little spot going on and I just love looking at her creations. While there I found this delightful idea and decided I wanted to be a part of it too!

Here are the rules: I promise something handmade to the FIRST five people who leave a comment on this post. To be eligible, you must repost this, offering something handmade or handcrafted to five other people. The rules are that it be handmade by you and it must be sent to your five people sometime in 2011.

Super fun, right? I hope you think it is and decide to pay it forward as well. Wouldn't the world be a nicer place if we all started doing these types of things more often? I think it would. So leave me a comment because I would love to pay it forward to some of my wonderful peeps that visit!

Have a super day! Find something to smile about and do something to make someone else smile! ~ Scarlett
