Description: Love the beautiful images on paper napkins? Let’s add birds to them! Learn several techniques to enhance your mixed media art. Some ideas will be for stash building using text pages, stencils and matte gel. Then, with napkins as a background we will create double page spreads using a variety of materials. With instruction you will draw birds and butterflies to watercolor. Then details will be added with pens. These will be combined with a variety of vintage papers, postcards, stamps, postage stamps, tickets, labels, ribbons, photos, and washi tape. We will also create a page using acrylic paints to combine a figure with a bird or other animal. You could also use a magazine image. I like to work in a large Moleskin journal (no lines), but any journal, canvas board, or heavy paper will work.
