How to Make a Mixed Media Grocery Bag Journal


Don't throw that brown paper bag away! Instead, learn how to make a mixed media grocery bag journal from Heidi Borchers. Use mixed media techniques and recycled materials to create this fantastic keepsake. Use it to record your thoughts and dreams.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use the swipe painting technique to add dimension and color to your project. Use tissue paper, beads, Cool2Cast and yarn to complete your journal - this is a great way to use up bits and pieces from your stash. Unlease your creative side and decorate your journal with inspiration images. Crafting with recyclables such as brown paper bags is a great way to help the Earth and go green.
