When Kiala Givehand invited me to join her hop announcing the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck I was honored. This is such a fun and creative deck to play with and it even helped me get unstuck in a jiffy! I only had a few minutes to play and guess what – that is all I needed to get another layer or two on this canvas. It’s not finished yet but at long last it is moving forward! Thanks Kiala!
What is the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck?
It’s 52 inspirational guide cards designed to inspire
your mixed media and art journaling practice.
The cards feature a variety of directives to guide you through your art practice as you play, explore, discover, and create. There are many ways to use the deck.
- PLAY — deal yourself a few cards then let your muse take over!
- EXPLORE — shuffle the entire deck, then pull one card at a time and see what you’re inspired to create
- DISCOVER — keep the deck near your art table and pull a card as needed
- CREATE & COLLABORATE — create with a friend (or a group of friends). Round robin style journaling infused with a dash of serendipity. What could be more fun???

Onto the stuck part…I had this canvas that has been at this stage for about a year. Yes, a year. At first I liked it so much I couldn’t bring myself to trust any idea as good enough. Then I decided I didn’t like it but I couldn’t decide what to do to change it. So it sat. And sat until I used the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck. Check out the video to see how just a few cards could get my mojo back for this canvas!
