Mixed Media Wall Paper Journal Covers & More
I decided to use some wallpaper I had hanging around. At one of the meetings for CMMAG group in Raleigh NC, I had gotten some of this wallpaper brought in by one of the members. This all moved with me to FL and I had it packed away in a hall closet, when I found it again. I just had to do something with it, so I decided to make journal covers with the pieces. I think they must have been sample pieces, because the biggest piece is 15x15 inches, but for what I needed they worked great.
I also create some papers for journal covers with Gelli papers and Tyveck Envelopes, which I found the project in Beryl Taylor's book, "Mixed Media Explorations". I have done a few other projects in her book and have enjoyed her artwork so much that I had to do more.
She works with fabric, papers, beads, sewing and more. Everything in her book is absolutely beautiful and amazing. Definitely worth buying if you work in these mediums already or want to expand your creativity into something new.
Well, my friends and fellow creative folks, I hope you enjoy this video. Please leave a comment if you have any questions or just want to say hello. I appreciate your feedback very much and would love to hear from you all.
Thank you for watching! xo
