Fun With Mixed Media: Lively Paper Projects

Think outside the box and incorporate mixed media into your paper crafts. Get started by using gesso, acrylic paint and masking fluid to transform paper such as junk mail and phone book pages into beautiful backgrounds. Then, have fun with paints and stencils as you create a trendy chalkboard effect, experiment with washes and make your own stencils. You’ll even explore the color wheel and learn how watercolors and acrylic paints work together so that you always get the most from your paint. Finally, paint with drips, splashes, splatters and blooms as you build layer upon layer of texture and work with resists. Plus, I’ll share a few of my professional mixed-media projects to inspire you in creating your own unique scrapbook pages, cards, tags and more!
