Two Friends' Favorite Blog Posts - Mixed Media Art by France Papillon and Creations by CeeCee (Marjie Kemper)Two Friends’ Favorite Blog Posts (Series)

Today I’m sharing the second installment of my new occasional series called Two Friends’ Favorite Blog Posts.  We’re lucky because not only are these great projects, but each has an accompanying video project on the artist’s blogs.

France Papillon

My dear friend France lives in Belgium, which often confuses people!  She has chosen one of her fabulous mixed media tags to share with us.  I wish I could see this one in person as the texture is mesmerizing.

France says, “It was a project that allowed me to discover the DecoArt line and mostly, how it worked in my creative universe. And I absolutely loved that process! To have a pretty little project in the end and a fun video to share are nice side effects on top of things.”  You’ll find a video tutorial of the project on France’s blog.

Catherine Cote 

Catherine of Creations by CeeCee lives in Montreal, Canada. Her art journal pages are quite impressive, and this one with its haunting face is a clear favorite.

Catherine says “The time when I discovered “portals” and play with the nooks and crannies of a background. Letting the colors and nuances dictate where more colors and shapes need to be added. This page came about very organically plus it uses one of my fave color combos.”  Click here to see Catherine’s video of this project.
