I wanted to share with you all that I will have an altered art piece published in the upcoming eBook: Around the World with 80 Artists! I will be joining 79 other artists from all over the globe, sharing a wide variety of art projects. For more information please check out our page. You can sign up for a FREE copy of this book at launch on Amazon on April 15th 2016 to celebrate World Creativity Week. Also, 20% of the proceeds from this project will go to The Malala Fund to help girls gain an education.
So make sure to visit the Creative Art Academy to sign up and get a preview of some amazing art!
Here is a sneak peek of my project:
I hope you all will check out my project, as well as the many others included. Full tutorials and color photos will be presented in eBook format, as well as printable format.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello everyone! Welcome to our first “For the Love of Mixed Media” Blog Hop. I’m so glad you’re here
Our theme for this hop is hearts. I decided to alter a paper mache heart. I had some lovely “Downton Abbey” tissue paper that I’ve been hoarding, and I used it to cover the heart completely. I added some fabric trim from my stash, and a broken Charlotte doll that I molded with Amazing Mold Putty and casted with Amazing Casting Resin. I also had some doily pieces that I cut into little wings and added behind my molded piece.
And here is my ornament!
For more heart inspired projects, please visit my fellow artist’s blogs:

Just a really quick share today of an art journal spread I created for Katie Smith’s Make Things 8 Week Challenge.
Last week’s challenge was to create something using a photograph. Several months ago I bought some of Tim Holtz’s Found Relatives photograph cards. I collect actual vintage photos also, but these are fun because I don’t feel bad about using up all of my real ones I created this spread in my newest altered book, which will be featured this Thursday on the Amazing Casting Products blog:
Looking forward–have you been wondering what to do with all of the artwork your kids are bringing home from school? Next week on the blog I will be sharing some fun ideas on what to do with their little masterpieces!
Have a great day!
