"Mixed Media has become such a big part of the papercrafting industry. So today I’ve created for you a beautiful Mixed Media tag using some of the Staples, the Nature Sketchbook collection as well as a variety of mixed media supplies.  I hope you enjoy all the photos and are inspired to create your own mixed media tag." ~Katelyn
