One Step at a Time: Taming the Idea of Using Mixed Media in Journaling

2020-01-28
Love

One step at a time, I will introduce my favourite media to you, and show how I use them.  For you already mastering the art of mixed media, this is no news for you, but for those who has only a vague knowledge what it is (something messy, something too laborious or hard, something to be afraid of), this series of tutorials is for you. We are going to tame the idea of using mixed...

Taming the Idea of Using Mixed Media – Part 1:  Basic Tools (* This series of tutorials is aimed for beginners, but of course advanced mixed media artists are very welcomed to peek how I use these materials, too. *) Before going further into the world of mixed media, there are few basic tools that are, if not necessarily vital, then handy and convenient for crafting within the world of mixed media.   (Scissors are an obvious one, and sharp, good scissors are a treasure, but I won’t be giving them much attention here, you probably have a pair at your home anyway.)
