Mixed Media Art Questions
I am so grateful to be a part of your community. It has been a life changing experience for me. Thank you for following your bliss, and inspiring others in the process.
I know this may sound silly. But you always have such great images from your magazines. Even though we live in different countries I would love a list of the magazines you like the best.
Thank you so much,

Mixed Media Art Questions answered by Milliande
An interesting question, I guess I would have to say I use whatever seems to be lying around the house :-))
We get the Sunday Times Newspaper each week and within it is a culture magazine that I use a lot and a fashion type supplement which often has beautiful patterns in dresses and textiles suitable for collage
Another magazine we get regularly is the National Geographic magazie.. which is well renowed for its great photography .. for landscapes, animals and portrait photography
A lot of interesting mages can be found in " Arty Type " catalogues and magazines ..I like the images in the Anthropologie catalogue and Selvedge Magazine..the colour choices and design combinations are often enough to make me inspired to paint..
For Gel Medium Transfers and Citrasolv playtime good quality magazines that have a high chalk content work best ..as the image does not contain so much black and dissolves and tranfers well ..
Old Vogue, Elle or other fashion magazines can be found cheaply at thriftstores..again great for patterns as are interior DIY type magazines... again I go with what cathces my eye in the style, vintage, grungey etc but keep my eye out for patterns that can be found in dresses , furnishings, carpets even ...
Hope this helps
