  1. That is beautiful Cat. I’ll be checking out your youtube links later….with mute on BEFORE I hit play this time. 🙂

    I love your blog~I would love to do some mixed media art-I watched a couple of the YouTube videos you suggested. Do you have a short list of beginner’s supplies or can I use what I have (mod podge, craft acrylics, watercolors in tubes, etc.) Also- what type of ink do you use for your letters-dye or pigment?
    Thanks-Valerie (Lunarcy on AQ)

  3. Definitely start with what you have on hand! You might consider adding gesso to your basic supplies. Other than that, keep experimenting and watching videos, and you can buy the things you’d like to try.

    If I recall correctly, my lettering in this is a sharpie and a white gel pen. The crickets are stamped in pigment ink, but that’s never my favorite because it must be heat set. I’m more likely to stamp with solvent and dye inks.

    Have fun!

      I am having soooo much fun-found out gesso is much needed but got the through the first project without it. I have one completed-would love to show you but can’t attach a photo here. Made a couple of backgrounds last night with alcohol inks on glossy card stock and picked up matte mod podge and a Staz-on ink pad at Michael’s Saturday. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement!
