Episode 7: Mixed Media Photo Collages for Mother’s Day

April 27th, 2010

Welcome everyone to Episode 7! Join us as we take on a mixed media project that is sure to bring a smile. We think you’ll enjoy the process so much, you’ll be making them for all the special people in your life…and perhaps even one for yourself!  In our 2-minute craft countdown, we will show three simple gift-wrap ideas for Mother’s Day! 

Of course, this episode wouldn’t be possible without this week’s sponsor: The Creative Connection Event!  Watch our video to learn more, but let me just say — this 3-day conference is going to be spectacular! Whether you have a business, love the process of learning and creating, or even all of the above, you’ll want to be there. There are so many hands-on classes being taught by industry experts — crafts, jewelry, crochet/knitting, sewing, quilting, painting, you name it!  It is September 16th, 17th, and 18th. Come for any or all of the days! Kris and I would love to see you there!

And as Nancy Soriano and Jo Packham, the creators of the event, have said, THE CREATIVE CONNECTION will bring together women who are passionate about being creative in their lives as artists, business owners, bloggers, and more! Come learn, network, market, and create!

Now, what are we making in Episode 7? Mixed media photo collages!  Don’t let the project intimidate you — I learned how to do it while Kris was demonstrating, and it is so much FUN! Transferring your favorite photos onto canvas and then embellishing is something you will thoroughly enjoy. Take a look!

**Note: We’ve had good success with the decoupage medium called Liquitex “gloss medium.**

Yes, the ink from the photo has actually been transferred ONTO the CANVAS!! Wouldn’t you love to find out how?

You will not believe how easy this really is! Jump right in and have fun with it! The possibilities are endless!

    Brain Age group: Train Your Brain in Moments a Day
    showcased several brief games that will designer Doctor Ryuta Kawashima claimed wkuld increase blood
    circulation tto the prefontal cortex. Whilst they produce
    a dinner banquet for their plaything and stuffed
    animals, you will deinately get hours of enjoyment watching them learn how to
    be innovative. The other iss actually that We have wasted about 4 hours during the past week playing this.

    This can be a page to organize the video games I’ve produced or revised significantly which

    There are may different video games that can be efficient when used by the right instructor forr
    the coorrect group oof learners, ” Husøy explained.
    After i look for online games to put in the particular classroom, I use the same
    technique as any various other media. These are destroying thhe
    most popular values plus lexicon that will allow us to geet in touch
    with eacch other and hold us together like a society.
    The majority of games using a sexual theme feature
    a man character and a lott of naked women.
    A new number of games appear regularly and thus you do not obtain bored playing the same video gakes
    aain and again, these people get a brand new variety of sport evcery
    tme each goees online. The newest series of games these day’s are get awazy games to have to come out oof the trap
    solve tthe particular puzzle, discover the keys aand score as moee as possible.
    Give consideration though, because the game speeds up as you go.

    If you like Code Lyoko gakes yoou could find others

    This is a web page to organize the particular games
    I have created orr modified significantly with some notes
    about content. The house in Gone Home” is filled wijth nodss towards
    the genmre associated with games that will inspired this;
    one subtopic challenged learners to collect the particular hidden references.
    There are plenty of various games tthat may be effective when used by the rioght teacher for
    that right number of students, ” Husøy explained.
    When I search for games to setup the classroom,
    I use exactly the same approlach every other mass media. They
    aare wrecking the common values annd lexicon thazt allow us to communicate with each other and keep us jointly as a culture.
    The majority off games with a intimate theme havve a male character and
    lots of naked women.
    The particular legachy left by Russia’s first winter season Games any of sparkling purpose-built arenas with little if any post-Games use, a massive overhaul of facilities at the Black sea resort andd a
    record pdice tag that will triggered changes for upcoming
