Hey, Peeps. I've been busy preparing for my mixed media classes at the Cozy Crop House in Lititz, PA. Here's a little blurb if you're in the area, or plan to be in the area. And if you don't already know about Cozy Crop House, check it out!
Mixed Media Weekend!Come join us at the Cozy Crop House in Lititz Pennsylvania! This is an adorable retreat house set up for crafting in an amazing space, complete with yummy meals and cozy sleeping accommodations.
The weekend of February 14-16, 2014 there will be a jam packed Mixed Media Weekend.
We'll jump right in on Friday with a little ATC project just to warm up, then after dinner will be the first workshop! Saturday there will be three workshops and one on Sunday. If you are able to stay a little later on Sunday, a bonus workshop is being planned. You will learn a lot of techniques and go home with finished projects.
I'll be teaching along with the wonderfully talented Teresa Fenstermacher. You can check out her beautiful work here. I love her simple, clean lines, use of color, and inspirational designs.
In the first workshop, Teresa will be teaching an altered book:
DESCRIPTION: In this workshop we’ll deconstruct a vintage hard cover book then decorate the cover with paint, gesso, and ink using masks, stencils, stamps, and household items. We will then re-constructing the book placing sleeves in it that hold #8 sized tags. (bonus - you get to keep the vintage book paper!) Now you will have a place to store the technique tags you create when taking online courses!
In the second workshop, she'll be teaching a collaged canvas:
DESCRIPTION: Let’s make a beautiful 8x10 canvas to keep for yourself or give as a one of a kind gift! Create the background using ephemera, patterned paper, paint, and ink. Learn to create layers with stamps, texture mediums, stencils and rub-ons. We’ll add a girl and a phrase to make your canvas unique.
I will teach two Gelli Plate workshops:
DESCRIPTION: Have fun learning how to use a Gelli Plate, which is all the rage in mixed media and paper crafting. Make your own one-of-a-kind monoprints with custom colors using acrylic paints, stencils, masks, and a variety of other texture tools. We will learn a variety of techniques with the plate and use them to make altered tags. You will go home with a 6x6 Gelli Plate, several prints, and a stencil.
My second class will be a canvas banner workshop.
DESCRIPTION: Use your skills learned in your first class to make a mixed media canvas banner. Learn more techniques, including grungy flowers, playing with glass glitter, and other fun stuff!
Kate Rothacker, owner of the CCH, will also be teaching a Mixed Media and Metal Elements workshop.
