Reversed canvas by Nadya Drozdova

Sometimes I like to make a little bit different project, that is not actually in my style. I like to make experiments and try something new.

I took paper from Lost and Found collection by 7 Dots Studio, saw this amazing fly and decided to make a reverse canvas.

It is not very difficult project. So everyone also beginners could try to do it.  Sometimes we do not need many embellishments and other stuff to create something interesting.

I prepared a video tutorial for you, hope you like it.

DT farewell

Changes are not always easy. I suppose for all of us. But sometimes they are inevitable.

During last year we have had some changes in our Design Team. A few new ladies joined us - Anastasia Korvyakova, Arantzazu Sangrador and Nadya Drozdova. A few ladies stepped down the team. As another term of our Design Team has ended, today we would like to say big thank you to two wonderful and talented designers, that have been with us for a long time - Cindy Brown and Peggy Nirvana.

Before we would say farewell, we would like to remind some of their fantastic inspirations, created especially for Mixed Media Place team.

Thank you Nirvana and Cindy for all the wonderful tutorials and inspirational projects! For your contribution into scrapbooking magazines on behalf of Mixed Media Place. For spreading word about new products and being ambassadors of Mixed Media Place store. Being with you here was a great pleasure! We wish you absolutely only the best on your creative path and we hope to see your wonderful creations in our challenges too xxx

Andrzej, Finn and Tusia


In the journey by Anastasia Korvyakova

Hello mixed media fans! Do you love to travel? I really love! In the spring I feel that my desire to travel is becoming stronger. I don't know why so...

It is Spring, and I remembered again about trips and travels and in my work I combined  a box of cheese (from Paris) and a photo from my last trip.

My favorite products from Mixed Media Place store helped me to create this photo-frame. I used crackle paste and rust effect paste, acrylic paints of blue tones and patina effect pastes, and of course for beautiful accents I used gold and silver waxes . I prepared video tutorial and I hope you will be interested in watching it.

Altered box by Georgie Conelly

Hi lovelies,

I’m here today sharing an altered box, mixed media style. These plain little boxes are great to work with, making a good little base to let the creativity out.


I started with a coat of white gesso. This helps the next layer go on smoother or stick better. I next used White Crackle – my all time favourite of any crackle paste out there! It produces THE BEST crackles! Then came all the mixed media goodness using a piece of doily, some Scrapiniec, Finnabar Mechanicals and a Relics and Artefacts piece for the focal.

Another coat of white gesso and then on with some art alchemy to make everything blue.

I used other various art alchemy paints to hit the raised areas with the flat, dry brush method. I went a little against my norm with colours and used brights such as Lime Peel and Fresh Orange.

However,I also wanted to create some depth and deeper tones so cracked open the Blackberry art alchemy. Once I had all the colour on I used some Metallique Wax in Vintage Gold. Such a versatile gold, I love this colour!

Love and hugs
