Mixed media is one of the new directions for scrapbooking, with lots of scrapbookers including paint, sprays, texture, stitching and finding etc on their pages. I personally love this movement and enjoy creating a page with a non traditional feel – channelling that inner artist ;-) we all have inside us.

Any of you guys who are also into mixed media are going to just love these new art journals and mini albums from Prima released at the 2012 Summer CHA.

  • media mixed mini albums – These canvas covered wood albums come with a decorated and textured cover and a leather and string binding. These covers can be used as they are but can also be decorated further and the video shows a before and after, so you can see the difference. They also have a great little door handle to open the album and lots of pages (50 kraft pages) that you can decorate and add your photos to. They would make excellent wedding or baby album.


  • canvas mixed media art journals – these sets include 3 canvas resist pages (the pattern shows up when you add sprays, inks etc), 6 double sided tags, 3 clear plastic sheets, 3 plain canvas sheets, 3 plain water colour sheets, 1 sheet of cardstock of alpha stickers and 6 double sided sheets of cardstock. All you need is the metal rings and you have yourself an album. So these kits can be decorated as an album with photos etc or it can be used to experiment with mixed media techniques and collated into an art journal or maybe used as a travel journal. So much choice so little time!

So check out the video above and also click on the link if you would like to see more releases from 2012 Summer CHA.
