Class Description

All you need is a blank canvas to "Start The Magic!" This course is for anyone who would like to learn more about using mixed media in scrapbooking. Mixed media is exciting because it extends your creativity beyond the boundaries of traditional scrapbooking pages.

Beginners will gain skill, understanding and confidence using mixed media products, while experienced scrapbookers will gain new ideas and techniques to use on their projects. This class will allow you to experiment with gesso, stencils, mists, and chipboards. You will learn how to add dimension to your projects without adding bulk.

During this class, you will have the opportunity to be creative and use your own imagination to create 2 canvases (1-15.5 x 20" and 1 smaller 8 x 10" canvas). You will use the techniques to create your own original work of art! Personalize your projects and bring along any handmade flowers, old lace or damaged costume jewelry like pearls or brooches.

Students should bring 1 large photo (8x10 is best), preferably in sepia or black and white (however a colour photograph is acceptable). If you want to use a photo on the second smaller canvas, please bring a photo that is 6x4" or smaller (or 2 photos of different sizes to choose from).

If you have any questions feel free to contact Agnieszka Bellaidea via the ScrapFest forum.
