In this workshop you learn a variety of easy and fun mixed media techniques. We are using templates and a gelli plate to create mono prints. The same templates can be used with spray ink, which gives a different effect. In the second half of the workshop, we make use of cut out texts and phrases to add text to the background pages, so called ‘found poetry.’ You receive tips how to look for texts that will give meaning to your art journal page. Adding marks and doodling with various pens brings all the elements on your page together. You will create at least one (but probably more) fully-fledged art journal page.
Materials & supplies (provided)
- Acrylic paint
- Dylusions spray ink
- Various templates
- Paper A5 (180 gr. quality paper)
- A large amount of cut-out texts (words and phrases in Dutch and/or English)
- Extra (beneficial) tools & materials such as paint rollers, brushes, glue, heat gun etc.
Things to bring with you:
Pens, pencils and permanent markers of your choice (but at least a black and a white marker,) scissors, glue (preferably a strong gluestick) and, if you have one, a heatgun.
Creating with paint and spray ink can be messy. I suggest you put on old clothes or take an apron with you, to not ruin your clothes.
