Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

April Mixed Media Guest Designer



This month we are focusing on Mixed Media designs. A design style that has gained great popularity in card making. For the month of March we have amazing Maria Fisher joining us. If you haven't visited her blog,  Reislingmama, you are in for a treat. You will find an artist who puts so much careful consideration in her designs and she will always discuss her process--what she did and why. Maria is knowledgeable in about every technique in the book. She is crazy talented and if we pay close attention we might learn a thing or two about mixed media.
