September = Mixed Media Month!

Hello, Memory Bound friends! 
September is Mixed Media Month at Memory Bound!

What's mixed media? Here are a couple of definitions which should take the mystery out of this exciting trend!

An artwork in the making of which more than one medium, or material, has been used; a new trend in paper crafts.

A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.

Mixed media is an important new trend in paper crafts. We saw many examples of mixed media at the trade show this summer. Take a look:

Take advantage of this great opportunity to expand your paper crafting horizons by learning mixed media techniques -- any of which can be used on cards, scrapbook pages, and home decor projects. In September, you can sample different materials, try new products and techniques, and discover what you like!
