Does Mixed Media intimidate you? I know it did me. I thought that it was only for canvases and bigger projects. But it’s not! If you are familiar with my work, you can see lots of mixed media product on many of my greeting cards. I have also published some you tube videos on this topic as well.
Maybe you are already a Lover of Mixed Media? Either way, if you need to stock up or have just been thinking about trying a new medium, this may just be the time! All Faber-Castell product is on sale!
Faber Castell’s lines are perfect for mixed media artists, papercrafters, and scrapbookers. This line includes pencils, pens, gelatos and markers. You can also pick up some stencils, paste and Gesso. You can easily transition some of your current work by adding some different mediums.
Tim Holtz is another brand that offers some different mediums. I use many of these products in my day to day art work. While many are intimidated by distress crayons, I find them to have multi uses. You can easily color up your texture paste or gesso by scribbling a distress crayon onto your craft mat and mixing in your medium. This is an easy inexpensive way to get a variety of color in your art work.
Collage mediums are also great to adhere ephemera or help you create a collage. I use this product with my fingers, but there are also Collage brushes to help spread this medium. Select Tim Holtz mediums are also on sale!
Here are some of my favorite items:
