WOYWW? Huh? If you're wondering what that means, it's a fun little thing we do each Wednesday courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. It's fun to run around the internet world and have a look-see at what everyone has cooking on their creative desks. Be sure you check it out!
Here's how my craft table looks this morning. This is pretty much exactly how I left it last night after creating a card for Heather Kraafter. Silly me, I didn't even take a picture of it before I put it in the mail this morning. You'll just have to take my word for it that it was cute!
That little stack of birthday cards you see laying there are getting ready to be sent to my mother. She lives in Yuma, AZ, and she and her friends are well known for remembering each others' birthdays. They go around their park in their golf carts (or walking) and leave cards and sometimes little gifts or flowers on the birthday person's front step. It kind of reminds me of May Day when I was a kid and we'd make paper cones with flowers in them and leave them at the door of our neighbors. But I digress..... Mom asked me to send her an assortment of birthday cards for her friends. I have a stack of ten ready for her, but some are blank on the inside so I'm getting ready to stamp a greeting in them before mailing them off to Arizona. It gives me a perfect excuse to create more cards since I'm depleting my stash!! Oh darn!
Now about that blog title -- In Search of Mixed Media. What is mixed media? Well, from what I've been told, it's very simply the process of creating something with a combination of different mediums. I don't think of myself as a mixed media person, but with that definition in mind, sometimes I guess I am. There are times in my card making where I'll use various markers (Copics and others), water color (either with ink or pencils), chalks, embossing and more. So I guess that counts, right?? I think I need to embrace this mixed media concept more.
What's your take on mixed media? How would you define it? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
