Mixed Media Techniques on Blotter Paper

Mixed Media Techniques on Blotter Paper

Hey friends, what’s going on today?  Well…..

… I thought I would take my under paper (blotter) on my art table and take it to the next level with more layers of paint.  I’ll show you how I use texture paste on art tissue paper and use those torn pieces as collage fodder. Finally, I show you how I put an image transfer on the piece.

 

I really hope you enjoy that and share with others.  Please subscribe, click the thumbs up and share if you liked it.

I’ll be back soon with more.

Thanks for your comments; I just love hearing from you.

Edgar Allen Poe Journal

Standard

Hey, everyone… This weekend is the end of July!!!  Can you believe it? Wasn’t it just May?

This weekend, I published a video on how to create of journal from a notebook.  I covered the back and front of the notebook, creating a personal journal, with layers and layers of paint and just did an overall mixed media frenzy on it.  After all the love/hate process and the stages it went through, I love the way it turned out.

I created this as a gift for my amazing niece, Christina, for her birthday.  She loves Edgar Allen Poe and she loves to write. So, I created this journal for her to enjoy and write in.

I hope you enjoy it.

If you do enjoy my channel, whether it be my art or cooking, I’d love it if you subscribe and hit the thumbs up.  Please share with all your family and friends.

I’ll be back soon for another video on some sort of art.. .culinary or mixed media.

Love to hear from you with your comments.

Thanks for all your support and being here.

Sito’s Kitchen – “Itch”

Standard

Well, hello my friends and Happy Summer.

I sure hope you are all enjoying your weather wherever you are. We have had such a strange summer with lots of little thunderstorms and sunny, hot days.  It just feels good to leave the house without grabbing a jacket and walking in warm weather.  It doesn’t last long, so better enjoy it while we can, right?

Today, I am posting a video of Sito’s Kitchen with mom and I making a great dish called Itch (pronounced “eech”).  This simple dish is great alone, in a salad or as a scoop-able dip/appetizer.

As I write this, I realized you could replace the bulgar with quinoa.  Get creative, but the tomato paste is key here.  Take this to a party and you will be the talk of the town. LOL!!

I love hearing from you. Please leave a comment and like my post if you do enjoy it. Don’t forget to hit the thumbs up and subscribe.  I would love it if you shared with with your friends. 

I’ll be ready for an art video soon, so stay tuned for that.

“See” you soon

New Online Class at Joggles – “Button n’bellishments”

Standard

I wanted to share with you some exciting news.

I will be teaching my first online glass in February at Joggles.  Joggles has many online classes along with many art supplies you can order. Seriously cool place to shop.

This will also be first ALL video based class to be held on Joggles.  Usually, all the classes are PDF driven, which are really nice too, but I thought that videos would be more fun and easier to follow, not to mention to get to see me in action or mess up.. kidding.

The class I’m teaching is called “Button n’bellishments“.  I’ve taught this class live before and  I had such a great time with all the students; they made some really cool B&Bs.  Now, I bring it to you online.  You can read the details below.

I’ve been working on this class since October and hope that everyone who signs up enjoys the many videos I have prepared.

This class is scheduled to begin on February 7, 2013.

Description:

14 mini-video lessons plus bonus video on how I decorate journal covers and my mixed media collages.

How would you like to make your own embellishments for your journals or any of your mixed media work? In this class, I will show you how to make beautiful, one of a kind, all your own, buttons and embellishments made from polymer clay – I call them “Button n’bellishments”.

This workshop is all video based with several mini-videos per lesson.

Lesson 1: 9 mini-videos.

You’ll begin my learning how to create your pieces by hand with polymer clay and baking them. Hearts, wings, buttons, flowers and faces.

Lesson 2: 5 mini-videos.

We will “antique” your embellishments to make them look vintage-like and then add a glaze to them to make them shine.

The final step will be to adorn your pieces with costume jewelry, old jewelry, fabric, lace, rhinestones and glitter. It’s your world; make them gorgeous! You can download these videos and keep them forever.

You’ll be able to communicate with with me via the Joggles forums for any questions, help or just to show us what you did.

Curious to know how Joggles online classes work?    Go here for details:  http://www.joggles.com/onlineclasses.htm

As always, thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you’ve signed up; I’ll be looking for you.  Share this post if you’d like.

Happy Holidays to everyone!  I hope this new year brings you health, happiness and safety.

Mixed Media Coffee Filter Collage Paper w/Video

Standard

I’ve had a few requests to show how I do some of my mixed media art.  Ask and you shall receive.

I filmed this about two weeks ago.  Then I had troubles with downloading/uploading, which software to use… yada yada yada.

Here is my first edited (poorly) video.  I decided to make a coffee filter collage piece to show you my process from start to finish.  No planning was done.. I just took out a stash of my “stuff” and see where it took me.

I don’t need to write much more here on the blog, as the video will give you all you need.  I used this same process using used dryer sheets or on a piece of fabric (I like muslin).

I hope you enjoy… and I apologize ahead of time for any hiccups in the editing (in addition to a whining dog, no not my husband.. ha ha).  I’m just getting the hang of this. I think little parts got cut out when I did the editing.  I can see that now.  But you get the idea here on adding layers and fun ephemera.

It’s 18 minutes long… so sit back and relax.  Silence all cell phones, as they say in the movie theaters.

Here are some closer still shots of the final piece.

So many uses… cut up your favorites parts and add to your journals and collages. Imagine this as a unique book cover with sewn pages.  Sew it on a canvas bag or add it to a quilt project.  It’s a pretty strong piece by the time you’re done with the layers of fabric, etc. and gel medium.

Click here to see another collage filter I made.

Here is a reminder of what you can do with the full circle filter:   See how I talk about putting this one together HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your compliments, kind comments and some of you who asked for a video on how it put my art together.

Send this along to a friend who might enjoy it.

Please give this a try.. So easy.. I want to see yours.  Send me pictures and I’ll put them on my blog.

Love having fun with you.  More to come.
