So I follow a bunch of artists on YouTube and they do occasionally do livestreams on U-stream. My main problem with that is A - I work all day and B - when I try watch it later, there is too much chatter and people signing on and asking questions and you're only hearing one side of the conversation.

I do like Barbara from Joggles, because as some of you mentioned, she tells it all and there isn't a lot of chit chat that is off-topic.

FYI - I follow MixedMediaJenn, Cat Hand, Shannon Green (who doesn't post as much as she used to - she's now a rep or designer for Canvas Corp) but watch her older videos - she chats a bit but she has some fun ideas, Kiala Givehand - again not so active but she did a book a week a few years back so there is lots of info on different books to make, Carolyn Dube - she's a kook but her videos are usually short and sweet. She also has a huge back log of videos about Gelli printing. PackerDi and Jenniebellie now mostly have pay to watch things but again you can go back and watch their early free stuff. I like Teesha Moore and Donna Downey and I do pay to watch their stuff.

EDIT: There are still free videos - Donna Downey Artists Gang. They are posted on Tuesdays and it is a group of  6 artists for one year - there is a video for today here:


Cat Hand started a series last year called Mixed Media Morsels - I think there are about 30 videos. Short and easy techniques for creating backgrounds, lettering and using up some of your scraps.

I'm also taking Tammy Garcia's/daisyyellow Groovy Grunge class which started Dec. 27 and I love it so far. I'm working in an old book for this one. (She's gypsy999 on Instagram and Flickr.)

I received my second box from sydney23 - she packed a whole lot into a small space! If I could pack and package things like that, I would have sent a smaller box, too!

Lots of pics - enjoy!

Fabric scraps, tags and some cool pockets.

See how nicely it's all presented! Wow....

Maps, dictionary pages, a vintage joke book and bookmark

Lots of lovely paper, some jewels, ribbon and canvas ATCs?

Books pages, flash cards and some arty ephemera

A postcard, some embellishments, and some stamped images - I love how you included the whole alphabet!

The tags envelope - lots of fun goodies

The die cuts envelope

The stickers envelope

Thank you so much Sydney - I will busy adding these goodies to my handmade junk journals and into my art journals.

I'm interested - lots of ideas on the new Paper and Mixed Media craft along thread.

You don't need to clean the Tyvek while printing, but it may take some time to dry if the paint is layered on thickly.

And just like a commercial stencil (I don't clean those either while Gelli printing), you flip over from side to side and get the negative print on another piece of paper while printing.

A video by Jogglesdotcom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgQvwSftdpM

It's 21 minutes long but explains Tyvek masks, and in the second section/technique, explains what I was talking about when I said (earlier in the discussion) using one print to remove paint and then printing the second time and getting the string print.

Hope this is clearer.

And a reminder/hint - you can get a Tyvek envelope from the P.O. and cut it up for stencils/masks - no need to spend money!

So, not to change the subject lol, but I just watched a new video for LittleRavenInk doing an "unboxing" of the new Jane Davenport line of journal/mixed media supplies. It's supposed to debut in Micheal's stores on Jan. 10th. I don't usually buy this sort of stuff but it looks pretty cool and I may have to try replicating the "butterfly effect" journals. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1Jt3tDWOE0&t=0s if anyone wants to check it out. It around 45 minutes though. Its a really whimsical and colorful collection. Pretty good inspiration.

I like Jane Davenport too - I think I have some face stencils from a few years ago. I looked at the Michaels website and almost all of the products are sold out. So that will hep with us not buying anything new!

I'm no professional but I use Canson Mixed Media paper most frequently. And lately I've been loving maps and atlas paper - it's smooth and takes paint and ink well.

Just my 2 cents - I think you can use anything and everything (paper bags, junk mail, envelopes, Tyvek, muslin) - truly, anything goes.
