Welcome (back) to Mixed Media Artist!

Hi, I'm Cyndi, and I've been writing and updating Mixed Media Artist since 2005. If you're a new visitor, welcome! Come travel with me through a mixed media art wonderland, where no materials are considered too strange to use in making something! My constant cry as a young child was, “Please Mommy! Don’t throw that out. I can make something out of that!” No surprise that years later, it became the cry of my daughter as well (pictured above). It’s wonderful having a kindred spirit to share with. I hope that you each have someone in your life to share your passions with, and I hope that you’ll come and share them with me as well.

A few years ago, I had to cut back and consolidate a bit in my writing, so Mixed Media Artist has become more or less of an archive site, filled with tutorials on image transfers, fabric and paper painting, art quilts, collage, digital work, book arts, and wearables. You will find links to all of these up in the tabs at the top of the page. Every new post that I add to the site, however infrequently, will be indexed in one of those round-ups. Please visit me at Beading Arts for more information and tutorials on beading and bead embroidery.
