What is Mixed Media? 
mixed-medi·a (mkstmd-) adj.
mixed media
pl.n. (used with a sing. verb)
1. A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.
2. artistic media used in combination in a single work.   *Webster's Dictionary

and I really am excited to be part of this wonderful Creating Keepsakes Special volume, jammed packed full of creative AWESOMENESS! Not to mention….how cool is this blog hop! So many WONDERFUL designers that created artwork for this AMAZING issue are joining in for this Blog Hop! How COOL is that!! The techniques that each of these designers show in this issue are so incredible!

Here are just a couple sneak peeks of some really neat pieces created by Sara Strickland, C.D. Muckosky, Mega Klauer , and Ronda Palazzari. Every artist’s work in this magazine is AMAZING and it truly is one of those magazines that you want to keep forever and ever!
If you follow my work and my wonderful Susan K. Weckesser Inc. Design Team you know that I & we love to dabble a little in everything. I personally love mixed media because I find it to be so healing and uplifting. It truly is a way for me to unwind after a hectic day, let my soul recharge, and my heart soar!

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

Here is a sneak peak of my work that you are going to find in this fun Creating Keepsakes Issue.
