Share Your Joy: Mixed Media Shareable Art

I am overjoyed and super excited to announce

the official publication of my book:

Share Your Joy: Mixed Media Shareable Art

Welcome to the wonderful world of shareable art!

Making art to share, to give away, is a great way to begin your exploration of mixed media art. It’s been a big part of my creative journey. When you share what you create, you’re sharing the joy you experienced making it...whether you’re a beginner or a mixed media maven.


This book is an introduction to my style of mixed media art as I learned to create making art to share. From postcards to artist trading cards, to mini journals, and zines, I have been making art and sharing it for many years. This book contains much of the knowledge and experience I have accumulated thus far in my creative journey. This journey has been so joyful for me! Shareable art is a way to spread that joy to others. Teaching about the creative process that brings me joy is another way to do this. And so is this book!

In "Share Your Joy" I show you how to create "Art Papers" -  your own painted papers that you can use to create "Shareable Projects." These projects include postcards, ATCs, greeting cards, and special, mailable, gifts. Using this book, I hope you will play, get curious, and explore mixed media - attending to what you like as you create.

If you fully invest yourself in this process of discovery, you will end up loving...not just liking...what you create! And that love...that is the “Joy” in “Share Your Joy.”

All the JOYFUL things readers are saying about Share Your Joy!!!

"Sarah did such a lovely, amazing job. As someone who has been working in mixed media for 20+ years, it's hard to find a new book that speaks to me, but Share Your Joy did, and I've been working in my studio from the inspiration!" -Alix North

"Just bought mine today at Barnes & Noble! Love it! It's full of wonderful ideas to use in your journals!" -Betty Hannan

"Sarah's book made for an inspiring evening read! I'm working on my "share your joy" mindset and really loved each and every page." -Kate McCurrach

"I love this book! I have felt like, because my aim isn't to make art to sell necessarily, it wasn't serving much purpose. Clearly it is! Creating specifically to share is brilliant! I took it to my doctor's appointment (because they make me wait forever!) and the receptionist and doctor asked about it - it's pretty!" Kathy McDowell

"I pre-ordered months before publication and it was so worth the wait! Thank you, Sarah for sharing your gifts and so much inspiration!" -Missi Spicer LeFave

I adore this book! While reading it cover to cover and soaking it all in, there were times I realized I had forgotten to breathe. I was so focused! It is straight-forward and simply beautiful!" Paula Huszagh

"More beautiful than I knew it'd be! Awesome content!" - Rosanne Sabol

I shared with my daughters the things we could make, cooing over the colorful creations. We can't wait to get into making some of our own shareable mixed media delights. I highly recommend this beautiful book that I can see us benefitting from for quite some time!" - Rudelle Canady
