I wanted to pass along a bunch of free eBooks I came across at Cloth Paper Scissors. Each one gives you new avenues of artistic exploration–whether it is unusual processes or new media.
At Cloth Paper Scissors, they're all about starting from scratch and that’s why Mixed Media Art Techniques is a collection of four different approaches to mixed-media backgrounds. Whether you like to work on paper or canvas, these ideas will get you started. Use any or all of these techniques to jump start a day of creativity or work them into your own private day of experimentation.
It's summertime, which means a laid-back approach to life with vacations, picnics, and travel journals mixed in. The great thing about artist journals is that there are so many approaches—you can definitely find one to fit your style. Art Journaling Techniques is a great resource, whether you like doodling or painting, writing or collaging. There is a way to work art journaling into you creative life.
Printmaking Projects will be of special interest if you attracted to the process of mark making and surface design. Whether you like to use printmaking as the focus of your art, or just as an integral layer, these workshops will offer you new techniques to try in your next art session.
For those with fiber-oriented art interests, Felting Techniques teaches you how to needle felt by hand, wet felt, and machine needle felt to create mixed-media fiber art projects. Four artists (Beryl Taylor, Kelli Perkins, Beate Knappe, and Sarah Lawrence) show you how.
