21 SECRETS Spotlight :: Jessica Kovan

Nov 21, 2018

This week’s Spotlight Artist is Jessica Kovan. On element that I adore in Jessica’s work is her inclusion of graphic and textural text. Jessica is another artist I first discovered through working on the Incite – Best of Mixed Media books. I was very keen to learn about the designing process she uses in her journal prior to creating a large piece of art. In her 21 SECRETS Paper, Glue, Scissors workshop—Going BIGGER: Your Art Journal as a Planning Tool to Paint—you, too can discover how to use this cool process for yourself! I hope you enjoy getting to know a little more about Jessica in the following interview.


21 SECRETS Spotlight :: Raven Skye McDonough

Nov 7, 2018

The spotlight this week is shining on Raven Skye McDonough, whose beautiful Paper Mosaic Collages I first encountered when I was working on the Incite – The Best of Mixed Media series published by North Light Books. Her work is truly striking and I get lost in her myriad textures and details. Many if not most of the collage papers Raven uses in her collage works begin as her own painted papers. In her 21 SECRETS Paper, Glue, Scissors workshop—Creating Unique Stamps to Embellish Mixed-Media Collage Papers—Raven shares her technique for carving and using stamps in these painted papers. Enjoy this interview with her and little peek into her creative approach.
