Does the term mixed media scare you?  Did you know that you may have tried it and not even realized it?
If you have used these wonderful embossing enamels by Stampendous, the color fragments, glass glitter, and mica fragments, they are all a form of mixed media.
Another form of mixed media are the Faber Castell products.  If you love using the gelatos, you are dabbling in mixed media!
All of those Tim Holtz inks and paints are also a form of mixed media.  
These Tattered Angel inks are also a form of mixed media.
Our latest products for mixed media are these Viva Decor products.  The Viva Decor mediums are so much fun to use.  
These stencils are also very popular for mixed media.  
 Use some canvas or burlap on your project and you are "mixing" media.

So, don't let the term mixed media scare you.  If you want to learn more about mixed media, save the date of September 17th.  Jen Starr will be coming to Cat's to teach! Jen is a Mixed Media Artist with a fine art background who has been in the Craft Industry as a Designer and Instructor for the past 10 years. She is the Senior Educator for Viva Decor, USA, the Creative Director for Art Anthology and is a fully Certified and Ranger Recognized Instructor (with 5 certifications from Ranger). Jen absolutely loves to teach her students to use their creativity and think outside the box. It makes her so happy to be able to share her skills, knowledge and love of the art of scrapbooking and stamping with so many others.   If you love the new Viva Decor products or want to learn how to use them, you don't want to miss this class.  


  1. Do we know how much this class will be in advance? I'd love to be able to save up for it.

    1. Jo, we don't know exactly how much, but they are usually between 45-55 each. Not sure how many classes she will teach, but that will give you an idea how much per class.

  2. I think I want to take this! I'm not very good with mixed media. I'm marking this one on the calendar!
