About Me


Marjie Kemper

I’m a New York mixed media artist who’s been blogging since January 2011.  I enjoy teaching mixed media workshops nationwide and online.

I currently have an online mixed media workshop available through Craftsy.com, which helps me reach people all across the world.  This is a 7-lesson workshop focusing on all sorts of techniques with distress inks, distress stains, and Dylusions ink sprays.  Students obtain lifetime access and can watch the class as many times as they like, whenever and wherever they wish.

Beginning May 2017, I will be launching a series of online art classes as well as business courses designed for entrepreneurs,  bloggers, artists, and individuals who wish to teach their passions to others.

I am a Certified Ranger Educator and an active member of both the Association For Creative Individuals (AFCI) and the Craft Industry Alliance (CIA).

I happily create in many mediums on a full-time basis, and my style is shabby chic with an emphasis on color, texture, and layering.

My love for paper and ink began when I was introduced to scrapbooking and stamping back in 1999. I still enjoy telling stories through my scrapbooks yet I’m also crazy about art journaling and mixed media.

I love teaching people how they can use variety of media to bring out their artistic side!
