I am pretty excited :) Besides the technique based Über*Media Classes I will start offering a range of beginner and intermediate Über*Media Project Classes in the next months. From Minialbums to Canvases to Altered Art, there will be a lot different fun mini video classes . They will be all about an hour-long and you will learn a variety of techniques shown directly on a project.
And here is the first one…
In this one-hour long video workshop, I show you how to create a fun, little canvas album that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. You will learn some easy-peasy techniques with acrylic paint and spray inks. Using cardstock and canvas fabric as a surface, you’ll create a modern, funky album. And all this for about $6.90 USD in supplies (assuming you already have the paint products and basic tools).
This is a perfect project for anyone who wants to start learning mixed media without purchasing expensive materials. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get the mixed media technique bug after this workshop!
How this workshop works:
- Once you signed up and payed via paypal, I will send out the log in information for you. Please note that this can take up to 3 business days since I have to send this out manually and I’m traveling sometimes.
