Hey ya'll! So excited to have Kristen joining us again in December. We're such lucky girls to have two visits from her in this calendar year!! Here are the pics and class details. The Saturday jewelry class is full, but you can email me to get added to the wait-list. The Sunday mixed media class has THREE SPOTS open (we made room for 20 this class!!) - email me, and I will send you an invoice if you're interested in signing up. The class balances & payment buttons are available to you on the right side of the blog, for all of you you did early RSVP.
So looking forward to seeing you all and sharing a lovely Kristen Robinson weekend with you too!
Beautiful Journey – Mixed Media Journal
$125 Kit Included
I believe documenting the days that make up our journey is one of the most important gifts we can leave for our future. In class we will create a plethora of beauty as we work with a bounty of mixed media elements. Not only will we be painting but stitching, stenciling, creating with wax, utilizing Faber Castell amazing Gelatto’s and layering elements. The possibilities for this project are truly endless as this is the tale of your journey!
I will not only cover elements of composition but walk you through the construction of your journal from the most basic of watercolor pages to my tips and techniques for layers of paint, fabric and found objects. We will make our own stencils in class to use in our books as well as develop our own personal markings. While the kit includes a crème color scheme please feel free to integrate colors
