mixed media at Hearts n Crafts

Mixed media has come to Hearts n Crafts.  In addition to all your regular favorite classes at the store we have started offering mixed media classes once a month.  What is mixed media you ask?  At the risk of sounding obvious, mixed media is the mixing of several different craft mediums into one multi textured art project.

If you love layering paper and getting your fingers messy I encourage you to give this a try.  There is no right or wrong way to do it and any “oops” moments can easily be covered up or turned into something even better than the original project.  I call them happy mistakes.

Our next class is scheduled for Saturday April 20, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The cost this time is $20.00.  We will be completing this adorable house canvas and matching tag.  What a great Mother’s Day gift they would be. 

The supply list for each mixed media class is the same, a jar of flat gel medium (modge podge or Studio work well), a fine black pen for adding detail, brown chalk ink for distressing and a brush to apply the gel to the canvas (foam brushes work fine), that’s it.  Everything else will be provided at the class.

If you are even a little bit curious, I encourage you to sign up at the store no prior experience is required and if you were with me last month I hope to see you again this time.
