This is a fun and creative mixed media 8x8 chipboard mini-book that is sure to get your mojo going!  It has a unique trifold design with interactive flipping pages that give each section a gate book effect.  You will be working with mists and sparkling paints plus my own line of Dimensional Crystals from Art Anthology to create gorgeous backgrounds and dimensional effects!

Glazed Metal Effects

(for a non-scrappy version, just replace photos with vintage images, ephemera or stamped images)
You will create a unique and gorgeous 8x8 chunky canvas in this fast paced mixed media class...think gift ideas!!  The photo samples above are just two possibilities…color choices will be completely up to you and your unique style!
During the artistic process you will learn to take metal art to the next level by adding layers of gorgeous color. You will explore a variety of painting techniques with Ranger's Studio line of Acrylic Paints and learn to use some other multi-surface products to create some extremely COOL effects!  We will also focus on Ten Second Studios metal while you master the use of their molds and embossing tools effectively. We'll be embellishing with custom flowers made from Tim Holtz dies and use wire in a way that will truly have your creative juices flowing with all of the possibilities...You'll be amazed at how easy it can be to create stunning artistic effects!!!
