term “mixed media art” is a broad definition that covers many arts and
crafts, including collage, assemblage (both 2D and 3D), altered objects,
including books and boxes, handmade greeting cards, artist trading
cards (ATCs) and tags, art journalling and book making.
The “mixed media” used includes paints, papers and board of all descriptions, glues, buttons, fabrics, found objects, photos, metal bits, fibres, things from nature, inks, pencils, crayons, markers, pastels and polymer clays, to name a few.
- The main thing you need to remember is to COMBINE the medias listed above.
For my tag I finger-painted a piece of glossy card using alcohol inks. I then used stencil paste to add snow which I brushed with Perfect Pearls. I die cut my tree and bird next then added a few random dots of Glossy Accents which I covered with cut glass glitter. I added the Stampin' Up sentiment and a ribbon to tie it all together. So lots of elements which can be categorized into texture, color and shine. Fun!
