It’s Wednesday today, so that means there is a new blog post from the Mixed Media Art Crew up on Birgit Koopsen’s blog!

The theme I worked with is Alphabet Soup and as you can see: that’s just what I started out with!

It transformed into something completely different though. Visit Birgit’s blog to see the end result.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

It’s my turn on the n*Studio blog today! Which means that it’s time to share last month’s project with you here!

Free For All

Last month the n*Studio Creative Squad didn’t have a theme, we could just do whatever we liked!

I have piles and piles of printed paper sitting under the desk in my workspace, waiting for a fun project to use them on.

Whilst sorting through the prints, I also came across an illustration I did a couple of years ago.

And that’s how one + one became this:

Pattern Lovers Love Patterns

Last month the n*Studio Creative Squad assignment was to play with pattern, in my case using Nathalie’s Santiago Stencil and the Embroidery Stamp Set!

And because Harold and I were redecorating the living room, I thought I’d alter a couple of plain white tiles so we can use them as coasters.

Out and About

Just in case you missed it: the Creative Squad had a super special assignment last month.

In honour of the release of Nat’s book ‘Artful Adventures in Mixed Media’ (aff.link) the Squad played along with her 30 day Artful Adventures Stroll Challenge and created with the prompt of the day of our posts in mind.

My prompt was ‘Pattern’!

And I made the art journal page you can see above, as well as a couple of Mondriaan inspired cards!
