We hope you are joining us today after a refreshing weekend, but if not we have just the thing, an inventive mixed media canvas by our own Brand Ambassador, Nico Scrap, featuring our own Communique – DCE and Portrait of a Lady. Before diving into his latest creation complete with YouTube tutorial, Nico is going to tell us all a bit more about himself. We are so appreciative of his continued contributions to the Graphic 45 team! Also, a new week means a chance at another blog prize. Remember to comment right here on the blog and Facebook each day to be entered to win. We will announce a randomly chosen winner right here on the blog, this Friday. Good luck!
I’m Niccolò but all my friends call me Nico. I live in a little city in northern Italy, near the super famous city of love…Venice!
I’m in love with mixed media, cardmaking, scrapbooking and almost everything that concerns the use of papers. I’m a vintage lover, I love to go in vintage shops and discover new things that can be altered or upcycled. I’m also a steampunk addict and everything that has a gear on it must be mine!
Now, I hope you will enjoy my creations for Graphic 45, and I really can’t wait to start this amazing new adventure.

“This time I want to show you a mixed media canvas in very Nico-style.
It’s the first time I have pushed myself this hard with mixed media for Graphic 45, but I like the result. I found a vintage frame in my grandma’s attic and thought it was perfect for my next project. And then I had fun with acrylic paints, black gesso, vintage embellishments, and of course Graphic 45 papers!” ~Nico Scrap
