Go on a studio treasure hunt and gather your "gold". ALL your gold art supplies that is! In this workshop, we'll be lettering, painting and doodle decorating with a GOLD color palette. Go through your art supply stash and gather all your gold, pens, paints, markers, papers, mediums, etc. Keep them easily accessible to complete the fun projects in this class. I had so much on my own personal treasure hunt in my studio discovering so many GOLDEN opportunities in the "land of the misfit art supplies"!
LESSON ONE: "WHIMSEY WORDS AND PRETTY PAPERS"
In addition to your markers and gold paints, you'll need some papers. I'll be using brown packaging/craft paper, tissue paper, scrapbook paper, plain and striped wrapping paper. Make your own gift wrap, cards, decorations with your personally printed papers with your own beautiful handwriting using these techniques.
