Class Description

A 3-D approach to scrapbooking on canvas - sounds interesting doesn't it!

This course is for anyone who would like to learn more about using mixed media. Mixed media is exciting because it extends your creativity beyond the boundaries of traditional scrapbooking pages.

Beginners will gain new skills, understanding and confidence using mixed media products. Experienced scrapbookers will gain new ideas and techniques to use on their projects. This class will allow you to experiment with gesso, modeling paste, stencils, mists and any trinkets you have been holding onto for a really long time.

You will learn how to add dimension while creating a one of a kind decoration or gift for a loved one. If you joined my class before, you know what to expect, but this time we will create a different project. If this is your first time in one of my classes, I can promise you lots of fun, new techniques, and very dirty fingers!

During this class, you will have the opportunity to be creative and use your own imagination to create 1 canvas. You will use various 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, feathers, buttons, etc.

Students should bring 1 large photo (8x10 is best), preferably in sepia or black and white. However a colour photograph is acceptable. Any theme you would like to use is, birthday, summer or just a portrait photo - the choice is yours.

In this class I will offer a "free style" setup. I will bring a selection of different papers and colours for you to choose from.

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