Altered Art Obsession. This is a group of mixed media, collage, or altered arts artists – hoping to connect with artists of like-mind who have a strong desire to create art pieces that not only are an extension of themselves, but are moving and give a sense that something wonderful has been created.

Sculpey, the modeling compound folks have a whole list of project booklets that you can download for free. Great source for ideas.

Free watercolor painting tutorials. Lot's of interesting ideas here!!!! Good backgrounds for art journaling.
