Welcome to Mixed Media May: An Annual Blog Celebration of Mixed Media Artists!

This is a project that has been close to my heart for a long time. I originally conceived of the idea a few years ago, but I was just too overwhelmed by possibilities to bring it to fruition. Then one day, I ran across Connie Hozvicka’s 30 Journals 30 Days project, and Mixed Media May suddenly became doable! This site looks and sounds a great deal like her site, not because I wanted to copy her, but because Connie organized her project so well!

For 30 days in May, I’ll feature a different mixed media artist. Every artist was asked the same questions, but their answers are wildly different! Each contributor has also shared some of their favorite mixed media artwork to be featured along with their interview. Prepare to be wowed! The artwork is amazing and the styles are vastly divergent. I promise you’ll be inspired each day.

Maybe you’ve already picked up on this … May has 31 days! I have something special planned for the 31st day. I think you’ll like it, so be sure to follow the project to the end!

If you’d like to show your support for the project, feel free to grab a badge to put on your website. Please spread the word about Mixed Media May on your blog, Facebook page, or Twitter feed. In order for this project to be a success for everyone involved, we need to get the word out!

Putting together the Mixed Media May project has been so much fun — and educational! I’ve honed my organizing skills a little bit and advanced my web design skills. But the most fun was working with the mixed media artists that are featured on this blog. Artists can be so gracious when asked to talk about their work and their favorite tools & techniques, and these artists were no different.
