What is Mixed Media:
Wikipedia definition - Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than onemedium has been employed.
There is an important distinction between "mixed-media" artworks and "multimedia art".Mixed media tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. For example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, andcollage could properly be called a "mixed media" work, but not a work of "multimedia art."
Ingrid's definition - combine various media of your choice into layered, artsy, textured gorgeousness until the feeling of excitement and satisfaction hits you! Total freedom of expression and unlimited imagination are the main ingredients here. Think outside the box and use not only various art media, but also different materials like textiles, plastics, metals and more. Shabby chic or grungy and textured, girly or industrial.. no matter what style or look you prefer if you love and create mixed media projects we want to see them.
Rules & how you can join in:
1. You can create ANY mixed media project whatsoever... we would like to promote freedom of expression through art and don't want you to feel limited. No more themes from 2017! Instead, we would like to show us what you're working on, something you altered or something you created using a new technique you learned. Sometimes we might provide a mood board for inspiration or run an Anything Mixed Media Goes with Twist challenge so stay tuned.
