Add bright splashes of color with pigment powders, incorporate gesso and watercolor, and learn how to add mixed media to a patterned paper background. With a format as versatile as a Traveler's Notebook, you can take mixed media anywhere you go!
Let the colors flow with Zinia Amoiridou! In Art Journaling with Watercolors, take the skills you learned in Watercolors 101 a step further and create gorgeous works of art in your mixed media journal!

Mix things up with a design recipe! When Kelly Noel needs a boost of inspiration or a new place to start a project, she turns to self-imposed design challenges to get outside of her creative comfort zone. In Design Recipes, Kelly shares her best tips and tricks for finding inspiration and then using not one, not two, but three of those starting points to create a blueprint for a layout. In this first installment of the series, try out four of Kelly’s design recipes and add them to your “recipe book” of inspiration to pull from whenever your creative mojo gets low.
