Any other mixed media crafters out there?
About fifteen years ago, I became very interested in papercrafts: card making and scrapbooking - then lost interest and gave away all my supplies.
Lockdown has resurrected that interest and things have moved on. I’ve become fascinated by art journalling, junk journalling, collage art, glue books, call it what you will. There are many, many YouTube videos to watch. Often I find I’m watching more than I’m doing but there are some very talents artists out there often recycling quite ordinary stuff e.g. tattered old books, magazines, cereal boxes, security envelopes, paper napkins, old stamps etc into beautiful art.
Some of my favourite channels are:
Kylie Coo and Nina Ribena from the Mixed Media Emporium
Joie de fi
I can't paint or draw in any traditional sense but I can splodge paint, cut and stick, sew and create digital art so I am slowly finding my own style. It would be good to hear from others who find mixed media an absorbing creative outlet.
A thread about what to do with old cooking spices prompted me to post as I've been using turmeric, paprika etc to colour faux handmade papers. Treasure Books and Noli Art have posted excellent videos on how to do this without recourse to shredding, soaking, pulping and sieving through a screen.
