Mixed Media Scrapbooking:
My definition would be combining various traditional and non- traditional visual art media to create a layout  . . . a work of visual art.

I have always loved the look of the messy, grungy pages and have decided to get out of my comfort zone a little and along with trying some new techniques to try some new art supplies.  When I look at all those supplies . . .  well it’s a little overwhelming!  All those glazing and texturizing mediums, the paints, inks, tapes, adhesives and the list goes on . . .   Art supplies were made to be used, to be experimented with . . . and so I will.
It’s been a busy week and I’ve been trying to get to all the fun challenges that Lucy and Nicole have posted at My Sketch World this month.  Here are three layouts I have done and on two of them I ventured out and used some Gesso, water colors, acrylic paints and Glimmer Mist.

Snails was done for the Extreme Colse Up Challenge at MSW.

And since I LOVE banners I completed two pages for the Banner Layout Challenge.


  1. Wonderful creations! I too had just dipped my hands into mixed media . . . and there's still so much to learn. It took time for me to overcome my fear of it. And I just can't wait to immerse myself more in this aspect of the hobby.

    I'm glad to be accepted at MSW. And I'm now a new follower of your blog. Here's looking forward to working with you & everyone on the MSW team!

  2. Isn't it kind of fun getting a little messy once in awhile on a layout? I've added gesso and texture medium to scrappy supplies recently too. Love what you're doing with it and so glad I'm serving anohter term at MSW with you! Congrats, Joan!
