DESCRIPTION: Are you intrigued with watercolor painting, but still petrified?  This medium can be really tricky, but fear not!  Join us to master the finicky temperament of watercolor painting and capture that elusive magic with Joanne’s process. Experience the recipe for success with 10 (TEN!), foolproof watercolor techniques for painting piles of simple imagery and abstract illustrations (like Joanne’s flowers, frames, birds, butterflies, backgrounds, nature, etc.) to use in colorful collages for journaling, bookmaking, wall art, and card making.  Create over the top, inventive inclusions, hand cut pop-ups, colorful papers and even draw and paint lettering.  Take home a chunky, embellished handmade book with 5”x7” canvas covers filled with watercolor collages, pockets and words to treasure.
