2 Days Art Journal Class…studio 490 style

Let’s mix media and MAKE ART!


Come join us and spend 2 full days focusing on mixed media. We’ll be creating a large art journal. YES…it’s LARGE… 9 inch by 7 inch. We’ll start by creating the journal covers using my art parts and embossing pastes, and then work on art journal pages. Each page will have a technique as it’s focus.


Since it’s a mixed media weekend, we’ll be using lots of fun supplies like embossing pastes, archival inks & reinkers, distress inks & stains, remnant rubs, idea-ology and much more.


You’ll learn new techniques and how to use products more than one way.


I’ll provide plenty of choices for stamps, stencils and ink colors, so that you can customize the journal and make it totally YOURS.


We’ll ink, stamp, stain, emboss, collage, stencil and…MAKE ART!


Students need only these 4 items…
craft sheet, ink blending tools & replacement foam, wet paper adhesive, and scissors.


I’ll supply the rest.


I CAN NOT WAIT to make art! I hope to see you there!
