Each leaf shape works for any season by simply changing up the color of cardstock or using pattern paper and add dimension by gently bending the leaf shapes so they pop off the wreath base.

Shabby Chic Box by Andy Skinner

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.

Say Yes To New Adventures!

It’s the end of the month and a great time to revisit the Creative Squad projects Nathalie’s Studio Blog.  This group of talented designers created fun art journaling pages using Nathalie’s stamps and stencil designs. For convenience, we’ve listed Nathalie’s Stampendous products here but you can also stop by Nathalie’s store for her products, too.

The Creative Squad was given the challenge to create something that celebrates the spirit of adventure and it was fun to see where their creative spirit took them for each project. We’ve grabbed the links to all of the “Say Yes! to New Adventures” posts so you can browse with ease. Enjoy and be inspired!
