More Mixed Media Mayhem

Today I want to share a project I've been working on for a while. You might remember that I am taking an online workshop with Roben-Marie Smith called Mixed Media Mayhem. I've finished my background papers and assembled my journal and wanted to share the results.

I've had a lot of fun with this and it has helped me to get a little more comfortable with some of my supplies and colors. The cover is made of canvas fabric with muslin trim. Eventually, I'll journal on these and may even share them again once I've done that. I'm finding that my creative journey is taking me in new directions. While I still love papercrafting and card-making, I'm falling in love with drawing, painting, journaling and just art in general.
