How to think outside the box when approaching a mixed media art piece

What is mixed media? Where do I find my inspiration? How did all the layers of tape happen?

I stretched a 36×40 canvas and stared at its blank white surface for over a year. I had the vision of an abstracted antique airplane for my son’s room. There was just one problem however, I didn’t know anything about airplanes. I took out some reference books from my local library and dug up some of my husbands’ old airplane books but that wasn’t enough. Researching, learning and building a story is what’s great about the process of art. While doing my research, I was really drawn to the vintage looking green, navy, and copper colors of the old propeller planes. It wasn’t until a visit to a local antique store that I really started to see my vision come to life. When I found some very old LIFE® magazines along with some other older books, I began to read through the stories and text about pilots, aircrafts, war and Americana.

Tapes Edition: Nail Free Dorm Hacks & DIYs

As a recent college graduate and former on campus resident (now renter), I’ve acquired a bunch of great hacks and DIYs over the years on ways to decorate and organize my space like a pro without damaging any walls, furniture, or my wallet!

Working at Pro Tapes® and learning about all of our amazing clean removal products, it had really opened my eyes to so many more ways to achieve the same outcome but with much more ease, and effectiveness. Before I would be using “clean removal” products that actually weren’t so easy to remove. Now that I have been introduced to UGlu®, Pro® 46 and Pro Gaff®; the whole game has changed!

Keep in mind there are two distinct ways I utilized these three Pro Tapes® products; one, tape is being used as the actual decoration, and two, tape is being used as a replacement for hooks, nails, glue or screws.
