Hello Friends! 

Today I am so pleased to share with you another mixed media project that I have created for DecoArt's Mixed Media Blog.  This time, it's the beginnings of an altered children's book.

DecoArt Mixed Media Blog Tutorial Featuring An Altered Children's Book

Click HERE to be taken to the pictorial tutorial.  If you've not visited the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog, you're missing out on some wonderful art and all sorts of tutorials and educational videos.  I encourage you to check it out!  

While you're there, be sure to check out the new DecoArt International Mixed Media Design Team.  I am so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful group of artists; headed by that "Master of Manipulation" himself, Andy Skinner!

An Altered Children's Book for DecoArt-Vintage Mixed Media Book using DecoArt Products and created for the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog

In a few days, I will be posting a pictorial tutorial of my completed embellished book here, so be looking for that!  Since this originated as a children's book, I decided to keep it a book about children, using all vintage images peeking through the cut out doors and windows. It's interesting to see how this book evolved from start to finish.  It was SO MUCH FUN to make! Here's a little sneak peek ...

Have a great weekend and I hope you'll find some time to do your own mixed media project!
