Join me for the first class in a year-long Art Journaling Inspiration series! At each class, we’ll explore a topic to inspire and fuel your art journaling and other mixed-media topics.
In January we’re going to explore one of our favorite addictions, rubber stamps. But we are going to go beyond the ink pad and use stamps with Pan Pastels, acrylic paints, Neocolor II crayons, and Faber Castell gelatos. I will show you techniques for creating and then we will build finished pages on top of our stamping--that means we’ll consider color, composition and layers as we finish our work.
Basic tool kit: Ranger craft sheet, paint brushes, rag/cloth, pencil, scissors, water container to clean your brushes
Your art journal (I recommend the Dylusions journal by Ranger)
Rubber stamps--bring your “muses.” I will have some to share, too!
Black Ink Pad (I like Archival by Ranger)
Pen(s) for journaling onto your pages
I will have to share with the class:
Papers & ephemera
Pan Pastels & tools
Faber Castell Gelatos
Neocolor II Crayons
Magic pencils (Stabilo Marks All)
Dylusions Ink Sprays
Various rubber stamps
Black ink pads (in case you don’t have one, I’ll have a few to share)
