Mixed Media Art Adventure 102 with Wendy Vecchi 


Saturday, August 22nd     10:00 am to 6:00 pm 

Cost: $133.00 - lunch provided

Come and join us for a full day art adventure as we take it to the next level.

We’ll start the day by focusing on 10 new mixed media techniques that can be used on cards, tags, scrapbook pages, home decor and in your art journal.  We’ll play with distress spray stain and archival inks...embossing pastes and embossing powders, rubber stamps, stencils...and more. You’ll create 10 technique tags and the backs will be conveniently labeled with the technique instructions. This makes a great reference for future play.

Next, we’ll put those “just learned” techniques to good use. We’ll be creating a mixed media canvas that you’ll be proud to display or give as a gift. You’ll leave with your custom canvas mounted in a 8 x 8 inch frame so that it’s ready to be hung and admired in your home. You’ll choose your canvas colors and the title to make it a perfect fit for YOU.

shhh...don’t tell anyone....there’s an extra surprise home decor “something” that we’ll also create...

10 technique tags and a framed mixed media canvas = a fun mixed media art adventure and a GREAT way to spend the day! Hope to see you there!
