Mixed Media Process with Kristin Van Valkenburgh



“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”
— Henry Ford

Happy Thursday! I hope this finds you well!  I can hardly believe it, but today marks my last post for this year’s Jessica Sporn Designs Creative Team. I made 15 videos over the course of the year, happily playing with Jessica’s beautiful collection of stencils from Stencil Girl and stamps from RubberMoon. Her work is unique, elegant, thought-provoking and above all else, filled with love. It was an honor to represent her and her products, this year and always.


I also want to thank DecoArt Media for supplying us with gorgeous, color drenched supplies and beautiful grounds to work with. I’d been a fan before, but now, after using their buttery gesso and thick, rich ink sprays, I can easily say I’m a lifer. . . .

Now, on to this week’s process video entitled, “Come to My Party.” I used the backing of a 9 x 12 pad of paper for this one, as well as a combination of stamping, stenciling, collaging, drawing and fingerprinting for a truly mixed media piece.



I hope you have fun watching, and please do let me know if you try anything similar, I’d LOVE to see what you come up with.

A childhood obsession with Hollywood starlets led to an early life in the theater, where Kristin Van Valkenburgh spent many happy days on set and behind the scenes as both an actress and makeup artist for the stage. Kristin has a passion for all things mixed media and loves to create whimsical pieces with lots of layers, bright, poppy colors, big eyes and positive affirmations. Her work has been featured in numerous Stampington publications including Somerset Studio, Somerset Studio Gallery, Somerset Life, Somerset Apprentice, Artists’ Cafe and Art Journaling.  



You can find Kristin on her blogYouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
