Happy Thursday! Welcome back to another stamping therapy session. Today I have a video tutorial for you on how to make a mixed media mini art book! This was a super fun project and something a bit different then I normally do. I am mainly a card maker but I had fun with this mixed media project! I learned this mini art book technique from Dina Wakley. She is an amazing mixed media artist. I thought that I might give it a try with my own style and awesome Unity stamps!
I used a total of 7 kits for this project! This would be great as gifts or just to have mini art journals. I am working up the courage to start in my big art journal. It might just be me but, all that space scares me. I am use to working in the confinements of an A2 size card. That is where I am most comfortable! This was a fun start to try something new.
Mixed media mini art book
For some reason I was feeling a whimsical vibe. So I searched through my Unity stamp stash and found all of these beauties! I thought that they worked great with this mixed media mini art book.
Once you know how to fold up a mini art book. You can do anything you want to it. If mixed media is not your jam. You can fold up a plain piece of paper and do some simple stamping and coloring. It would be awesome to make an inspiration book with all the amazing sentiments and inspirational quotes that Unity has. When you are feeling sad you can flip through it and be reminded how awesome you really are! You could even fold up patterned paper and build your book that way as well. The possibilities are endless!
I hope you found some inspiration on making a mixed media mini art book! If you try this technique out for yourself, tag me over on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook group. I would love to see what you make with this technique. I love seeing your creations so much. If you missed last weeks stamping therapy post.

Thank you so much for joining me this Thursday.
Until next time, stamp on!
