About the Collection

Vicki Boutin Mixed Media is truly art for everyone. The entire line was created to be an introduction to mixed media no matter which type of craft you prefer. So, whether you're an experienced mixed media artist or someone who's starting out, the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection really does have you covered from start to finish.

When I was playing with the supplies from the collection, I wanted to get my feet wet so I went with a mini piece of artwork. Once I got started, it was super easy to add layers and create dimension. All of the products were very user-friendly. I am happy with how my mini mixed media art turned out since it was my first real mixed media project!

​​Here's how to create your own mini mixed media art:

Step 1: Cut down a heavy piece of cardstock to 5x5 inches and add a layer of gesso.

Step 2: Once the gesso is dry, use the yellow crayon to scribble on the lower left side of the chipboard. Use the pink crayon to scribble on the upper right hand side, coloring in the entire side.

Step 3: Wet a paint brush and run it over the crayon design, wetting it.

Step 4: After the water dries, lay the swirling circles stencil to the lower left hand side and add orange paint over the top. Then, add the stencil to the upper right hand corner and add orange paint.

Step 5: Take the full circle stencil and place it over the pink crayon on the the upper right hand side. Use a baby wipe to remove the crayon. The design will look white or a light pink. Next, place the full circle stencil a little to the right so it is not right on top of the design you just made. Trace around the outside of the circles with a black maker.

Step 6: Select a saying from the ephemera pack, add gel medium to the back, and glue to the center of your mixed media art.

Step 7: Add a gold clip to the top for easy hanging in your home or office space!

How easy was that? See, I told you the New Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection was super user-friendly. Not only can these products be used for mixed media, but also for other crafty projects - they are so versatile!

Happy Crafting!
