About Me

Here are some ATCs with different mixed media backgrounds ready for use. Different techniques used are:- melted wax crayons, gesso and pva glue mixed together painted with metalic acrylics and doodled over, vintage text with tissue paper and painted over with acrylic and gesso, fabric paper technique, vintage text with tissue paper painted with acrylics and finished with wax.

I like to spend an afternoon or evening if possible preparing different mixed media background ready for use in my art, the above is a small example of some of the mixed media techniques I use. There are so many and new ones popping up so there's always something to learn, so it's worthwhile having a good surf around on the net, so many blogs and you tube videos .
