New Monthly Class - "Mixed Media Mania"

What is Mixed Media? 

Very simply it means a work of art created with more than one medium. There are no rules and just about anything goes! Want to learn more? Come join me for our very first “Mixed Media Mania” class at the LBH. These new monthly classes will focus on the wide world of mixed media techniques and projects.

Mixed Media Mania
Tuesday, Aug. 27
10am-1pm or 6pm-9pm
Cost: $45

In August we will be playing with gesso, Dylusions ink sprays, stencils, modeling paste and a variety of “stuff” to create an altered cigar box. Each box will be unique, depending on the many different choices you will make. Below you will see some peeks of the box I created.

Wooden cigar boxes and most supplies will be furnished but I suggest you raid your garage, junk drawer, sewing supplies and craft rooms for odd bits to add to your box. (Some ideas: washers, nuts, bolts, screws, springs, sewing bobbins, zipper pieces, buttons, keys, old jewelry bits, charms, game pieces, flowers - especially colors you won’t ever use., etc.)

Supplies to bring:
non-stick craft mat
heat tool
Small bristle brush (not foam)
Fast-tack, clear-drying tacky glue
Small palette knife if you have one
2 favorite colors of spray ink (if you have)
“Junque” pieces as noted above

Please stop by the LBH to see the class sample and sign up for this fun Mixed Media Collage class. You may also call to reserve your seat!
(817) 431-7930

I look forward to creating together!
