Mixed Media Cards class at Studio Place Arts

A couple of weeks ago, I taught my Mixed Media Cards class at Studio Place Arts for the first time.

I have to admit, the first session was a bit rocky. It was just one of those days. Thankfully, the second session went much better.

When I teach, I’m a bit of a “more is more” person.

I had a wonderful group of women in the class. They fearlessly dove into everything, which is just how I like it.

They seemed to enjoy the rubber carving technique the best. I gave everyone Speedball Speedy-Cut carving blocks to create images using linoleum cutters.

They also did some image transfer using Chartpak blender pens. The markers have xylene in them, which makes them über-stinky. I gave everyone sheets of clip art that had been printed on my laser printer – the print outs work great with the blender pens.

Although the focus of the workshop was card-making, all the techniques taught in the class are applicable to book arts.

I’m working on planning workshops for 2012. If you’d like to get updates about upcoming classes and other events via Email, you can sign up for my newsletter. You can also check out the Events page on my website.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
