Requirements

Description

Have you always wondered on how to create a piece of mixed media art? If your answer is yes, then this class is for you.

In this class I'm going to show you how you can use mixed media to create easy and fun postcards with materials you're most likely to have at home already.

In this class we are going to look at techniques like collage, layering, adding stencils, stamps and colours and ideas on how to finish the cards with inspirational quotes.

 This class is perfect for students who are new to mixed media, as they will be able to create a whole project from start to finish and while learning a new skill and technique will have created four mixed media postcards at the end of this class.

However, this class is also suitable for students who want to get into a habit of sending more letters or are looking for Happy Mail inspiration.

 Looking forward to seeing you in my class.
