Mixed Media Class
I had the best time on Saturday, I had the pleasure of teaching a Mixed Media Background class at Memory Lane Scrapbooking in Missoula, Montana and had the BEST time. What a talented great group and such a joy to teach. They were engaged and wanted to know more!!! So thrilling for me as a teacher and what a joy. We spent the two hours playing with paint, stencils, inks, paper, and developed amazing canvases which I am sharing with you. I can't tell you how fun and engaging the class was. All of my students went away from the class with a gorgeous canvas and a new set of skills that they can use on their own as well as a new appreciation for the use of stencils. We used a variety of Crafter's Workshop Stencils which included the Mini Punchinello. I love that stencil and it is one of my go to stencils in my own personal work. I wanted to give them the opportunity to use a variety of stencils and brought many from my own personal collection.
Here are the canvases that we completed. You can see that we were obviously working on backgrounds but you can also see that each student put their own flair and personality into each canvas and each one is stunning. Thank you for sharing your talent with me on such a special day.
