Nativity scene, angels and wise men, oh MY! We are wrapping up our week of inspiration with visions of the Christmas story through our newest stencils and stamps, plus we have more from our design team.

Louise Healy made a fabulous card with the Wise Men stencil that we’ve linked below in the Monday hop list. Stop by and see it if you haven’t yet.
And more images that remind us of the season with our cozy country church scene and angel stencils, too.

It’s Friday and our relaxed week of mixed media is almost over, but we have one more bit of goodies to share. The terrific mixed media artist and designer, Andy Skinner, is the spotlight of our post today and there is a chance to see him create with his trademark techniques using his line of stamps and stencils with DecoArt Media products. It’s amazing what you can do with this product combination when you have a few techniques up your sleeve.
His style is a solid industrial style with even shabby chic mixed in on a few projects. No matter the style it’s in the techniques you use with your supplies and we have a way for you to see Andy in demo them in action, but only for a short time.
Even though we are in the States we followed along Hochanda TV, a UK Television home shopping channel, during Andy Skinner’s shows on Tuesday here and Wednesday here, here, here and here. These links won’t be available for long so stop by soon to see all the techniques that continue to make Andy’s mixed media pieces amazing, awesome, and SO cool!
All these fantastic projects were made with Andy Skinner stamps which are daring and iconic, just perfect for any mixed media or stamping project. You can see Andy using them our videos from our booth during CHA the last few years. Stop by our Youtube Channel anytime to see them!
