Here we create a simple background with many layers to add texture and visual interest to our Mixed Media Art piece, even before adding the collage elements. These techniques can be used with different colours to create all sorts of backgrounds.


The credit card painting technique is great for getting colour onto lots of paper fairly quickly, which makes it an ideal technique for large swaps or large journal pages.

Creating your own stencils is an easy way to add shapes and patterns across your artwork, and gives you control over your creating process and originality. If drawing a picture to make your own stencil is a little scary, then here is a method that removes the need to do any drawing.

For mixed media art, Shrines can be used to bring some of the ephemera out of the boxes and drawers and help us tell a story through our artwork. By making your own from chipboard gives you the ability to make it any size (or shape).


By doing something as simple as changing the size of the piece we are creating, our minds are forced to rethink the way we would usually arrange elements in our layout. Here we look at a range of “Standard” shapes and sizes that commonly appear in swaps and challenges, across the Internet and with local crafting groups.

Antiquing is the process of taking new papers and making them look aged, adding texture and a depth of colour to our mixed media projects. Here we introduce antiquing using coffee and tea. We will also discuss different techniques you can use with commercial products to create great effects.


Printing or stamping onto tissue paper and adding the image into our collages allows us to put images onto surfaces that are not smooth enough for straight stamping or printing on. Here we review this technique with a method that is simple and repeatable.

This technique is focusing on edging and sponging - two techniques that are used in many applications, often without a lot of conscious thought but it is a technique that can go unnoticed and often forgotten by beginners. It is a subtle effect, yet really alters the way a finished piece looks.
