24 Mixed Media Project Ideas That Will Transport You

By: Emma Fiander, Editor,
Paint Splatter Feather Bookmark

It's often said that those who read have traveled the world, even if they've never actually left home. In the same vein, crafting can take you to another time, place, or even world if you let it. These 24 Mixed Media Project Ideas That Will Transport You stand as proof of that. Travel the globe, take a step back in time, or meet your fairy godmother with these crafts.

Mixed media art is a great way to use the objects of here and now to take yourself somewhere. It's a very hands-on type of project, allowing you to become fully immersed in the experience. With your attention so completely absorbed by a singular thing, suspension of disbelief becomes much easier. Best of all, when you're done with your project, whether it's wall art or a scrapbook layout, you get to keep it, ensuring you always have a reminder of your adventure.

I am such a big fan of mixed media crafts. I have tons of craft supplies of different types so if I can combine them, even better.
