Our Big International Mixed Media Postcard Swap Starts TOMORROW!!

Wanna get a head start? Start making postcards using mixed media!

Mixed Media: "A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition."

Ink and Pastel. Painting and Collage. Photography and Ink. Crochet and Ink. Embroidery and Watercolour. Pastel and Felt Markers. Or get crazy and mix 3, 4, 5 of these together! The possibilites are endless!

And here is another example using paint, old book pages (collaged together in the background), a felt marker and a feather:

Get the idea? If you have ANY questions, let me know in the comments section or email me!
