ARTISTIC LAYERS MINI-BOOK with Jen Starr Saturday February 27th 3-6 PM

Saturday February 27th 3-6 PM

 (sneak peek – more photos coming soon) 

Using the beautiful and vibrant Dylusions line you will create this colorful and artistic chunky 6x6 mini-book which can be used as a scrapbook or mini art journal. We will focus on mixed media techniques for layering color and images, color theory and blending (without getting mud!), washes and glazes, a variety of ways to use stencils, stamps and masks, working with gesso and so much more… This class is all about technique while we create this book from scratch using watercolor paper and chipboard with a fun and sturdy binding method. You will be able to translate everything you learn in to future projects whether you are a scrapbooker or art journaler. I will also show you some bonus techniques for adding additional pages and some fun ideas for photos and images within the book.  (3 hours $45)
