Mixed Media and Other


Alissa Denning - All Smiles EpoxyName: Alissa Denning
Business: All Smiles Epoxy
Products: I use high-grade epoxy to create one-of-a-kind tables that are made from scratch or upcycled. Epoxy can go over almost anything, so I have a variety of items that include lazy susans, plant stands, charcuterie boards, coasters, wall art, and custom items.
 
 
After a year of apprenticeship with a local epoxy company, I decided to take the pro class at RK3 Design in Seguin, Texas and start my own business. I learned from the best and I have a lot of passion for what I do. There are always new and exciting designs and techniques to explore in the epoxy world so I’m always learning. That keeps me on my toes and loving what I do.

Artist: Laura Johnson
Business:  Découpage Collage
Products: Mixed-media collage furniture and decor
 

I believe in the power of transformation. In my art, I combine sustainability with beauty, employing decoupage to morph unwanted objects into objects d’art.

As I apply seemingly simple materials of paper and glue, old scarred but structurally sound furniture leaps to life in an exuberance of color teeming with nature’s glory: Dressers metamorphose into rainbow fantasies of birds and fish. Mismatched, dented chairs become colorful conversation pieces. Coat racks and picture frames bring the flower garden indoors on the dreariest day. I even use the world’s oldest paper (birch bark) to create a fresh, neutral palette for modern objects.

All items are made with a stringent commitment to reuse and repurposing. With the exception of glue and finishes, I do not purchase ready-made or new items.  It is a labor of love to glean and revive my materials. It is in this spirit, I reanimate unloved items into objects of beauty and worth.

Cigar Box Guitars by Mike MouradianArtist: Mike Mouradian
Business: LawnTrout Guitars
Product: Guitars, ukuleles, and dulcimers made from cigar boxes

Website: www.LawnTrout.com

Made in the tradition of the old blues artists, these are three-stringed guitars tuned to CDG for easy playing with a slide. They can easily be tuned to other cords, too.  

My guitars are handmade from modern cigar boxes with turn-of-the-century artwork on them. They have old maple necks; some are fretted. Non-fretted guitars come with a wine-bottle glass slide.

All guitars are electric and can be plugged into an amp. If you need a special theme, let me know.
