This class is from the creative mind of Jen Starr, mixed media artist and teacher! We're so lucky to have her stop by as she teaches across the USA! We love her energy and enthusiasm!

 

 

Colorful Effects Boot Camp – Techniques to “Dye” For!

Tuesday, April 28     1:00-4:00 pm     $45

 

In this truly MIXED MEDIA workshop we will journey through the world of water based dye inks…sprays, stains, ink pads, and more.

 

Exploring much further than just the basic techniques, the focus will be on MIXING your mediums with other products to create some beautiful effects that will translate in to all of your projects whether you are a card maker, scrapbooker, art journaler or dabble in everything! We will be working in 6x6 format with instructions for each technique on the backs of each page to create a collection to reference. Ask about the Supply List at registration.

Stencil Boot Camp

Tuesday, April 28     6:30-9:30 pm     $45

Stencils play a big part in so many mixed media projects and the creative possibilities are endless!

 

In this workshop we will explore some of those possibilities using a variety of techniques and mediums from Viva Décor, Ranger & Art Anthology…so not only will you learn how to get the best use out of your stencils, but a LOT of product knowledge as well!

 

 

We will go beyond the basics & create with some of my favorite and more advanced stencil techniques. We will be working in 6x6 format with instructions for each technique on the backs of each page to create a collection to reference. Ask about the Supply List at registration.
