Class Update : Our Art journal mini 3-day series workshop

Hello crafty peeps,
Hope you are doing great. As I have mentioned in my previous post, I would be conducting mixed media classes in my Prima Educator course "THE GRUNGE FEST - MIXED MEDIA" in  Melbourne, AU for the Feb-March '17 at the store Create On Ormonds. You will find more details here.

Do you want to know how to make an art journal but not sure where to start?

Art journaling can be great for your soul, but taking that first step of putting your thoughts on paper can be intimidating.
Our Art journal mini 3-day series workshop from the course "THE GRUNGE FEST - MIXED MEDIA" will come to the rescue! In this workshop you will create 4 great completely instructed art journal and 1 canvas with detailed manuals—like defining space with borders—and you will fall in love with mixed media art journaling techniques—like spritz resists, doodling, turning scraps into antique treasures—not to mention the great tips and art journaling prompts you’ll use for the “writing” part of your journaling!
You’ll be teaching your friends how to make amazing art journal pages before you know it!

You may attend all 3 days in the workshop series or you may choose individual days. Note that Day 1 & Day 2 build on the techniques and culminate in Day 3 Canvas workshop.
