Mixed Media: mixing colors with Prima Marketing

Fridays here at Camp Scrap will be freaky! Well, maybe not in a body swapping way but I will be playing with mixed media. What is mixed media? Quite simply, it is mixing & matching various mediums. There are NO rules as to what you can mix and match. NO rules about what you make. So this is definitely my kind of craft! If you’ve been following my blog or YouTube then you already know this is my kind of crafty jam!

Above you can see my starting point and inspiration – a new stamp and paints sent to me by my friends at Prima Marketing. What to do? Well let’s get out more Prima mediums and play! Here is a link to my YouTube video showing several mediums and a few ways I love to mix & match things too!

Looking for something I used? (affiliate) links to Scrapbook.com are here – they’ve got a huge selection of Prima products including Impasto paints (I used Jade, Cobalt, and Heather), metallic watercolors, watercolor palettes, oil pastels, water brushes, and of course ‘girl’ stamps like the one I used. I also mentioned manila tags, and I used archival ink (remember it’s good because it doesn’t react to water based mediums) for my stamp.

Are you wishing you could find out more ASAP about mixing & matching your color mediums? Playing with dimensional projects and more techniques? Well EVERYONE gets a prize today!! I partnered with scrapbook.com to film a mixed media basics class and it is now ready for you – free of charge. Click here to enroll in this new class now – for free! Our gift today to you.

  1. wow! I’m amazed at how much you have put into this free course May. I can’t wait to have a good look at all of the videos.

  2. This was so awesome, but does the tag start to peel from so much water with no prepping before hand. I love the class. I don’t mix stuff because I have never tried but seeing you is so fun. You make it look so easy. Your colors don’t get muddy and mine do.

    1. I’ve never had a tag peel – one huge reason Manila is so great it takes a ton of water and abuse in general. If your colors are muddy a lot of the time it is time to SLOW DOWN. LEt layers dry. DO a bit less. KEep playing, and enjoy!

  3. Another great idea May thank you will have to try it but need to find a water pen first. Will be a trip to one of my favorite craft stores and hope they have these. My Ipad doesn’t ‘do capital letters today.M

  4. I haven’t watched the video yet, but just signed up for your FREE class! Thank you! I don’t know how you have time to do it all but you do! Thank you for all your educational videos! They inspire me!

  7. This is such a wonderful idea! Us adults

  8. I guess a Class-aholic, lol. I take a lot of your clases, so a free one is a no brainer. However you pack so much in your clases, thanks in advance for making it!

  9. I really have the most fun when I’m doing a mixed media project. Applying things that aren’t normally used on a scrapbook page or card or just to see what happens if… I have not played with them enough tho & never thought of using an art journal with the idea of “testing” – DUH! Thanks for the class May. I’m going to a ladies painting party tonight. Learning to paint- I’m not a person who is good at drawing or making more than stick figures kinda thing- so this will be a learning experience. One I hope to apply to my mixed media projects too 🙂

  10. Great video and I like the mixed products. I do copics and colored pencils or Kruretake paints and H2O paints together. I need to break out of the box and try more mixed products. So glad I saw your video.
