Learn how to "draw your letters" as you take your own writing (no matter how you feel about it) and turn your letters into art. You will be able to design for cards or art journal pages by the end of this session.
Make a personal mark on your artwork. You will learn how to cut and form your own unique mark making tools from simple and easy to find materials. Minimal specialized tools are needed for maximum impact.
In this workshop you re-purpose/upcycle an old book into a new journal. You may select a variety of papers or stick with just one type (such as watercolor) to create your own journal perfectly suited to you.
You will create a mini book with one sheet of abstract watercolor paper then start your #mymessymandala project on one of the spreads. I have found this practice to be extremely relaxing and enjoyable.
Create your own journal from bits and pieces. Scrap papers, envelopes, unfinished pieces of artwork, greeting cards, scrapbook paper, watercolor paper, you name it...this is the journal for you to use it all up.
