Tag Tutorial

Hello Guys!

This is our first post for Mixed Media Mojo. Here's a little something about us before we begin sharing our project.

My mom Sunila and  I Aditi , started Dots to Lines and our forte is home decor, mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art. Sunila has a diploma in commercial art, and displays her artworks in various galleries across the world. She has also worked as a Graphic Designer at Hameed Mugal, Kenya.  With a MSc. in Clinical Psychology and Dip. in Special Education,I  took up arts and crafts since school days and also practiced art therapy when working with children with special needs. I have also completed an art course from School of Visual Arts, New York. 

Crafting, thus has been a part of daily activities mostly in the form of various altered projects, or making gifts.  We are into paper-crafting, layouts, journaling, card-making and scrapbooking. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and usage of vibrant colours. We aim to spread joy. 

Today, we’ve created a mixed media tag on the theme of the January Challenge- New with the twist clocks.
Sit back and enjoy:)!
