So the other day I was chatting with M, a friend who teaches at my LSS and she explained to me that she was not into the whole mixed media trend because it was too messy for her. I guess that's what people associate mixed media with when people share their dirty painted/inked hands on social media. *LOL*
I am a surprisingly neat painter. I don't even need to wear an apron and my hands and nails stay pretty clean. Even when using my fingers to paint this art journal cover. :)
My secret? A wet rag on hand. I just clean as I go along so my hands don't get stained and my things don't get dirty. :)
Still love the amazing textures one gets from wrapping tissue and paint.
And my current obsession with chipboard in my art journals. Love that they add so much visual interest without the bulk.
