In each class participants will use a variety of materials and techniques to create 4-5 small mixed media samples.  One will be finished in class as a special, one-of-a-kind greeting card.  The others will be taken home to use as desired in home decor items, card making, scrapbooking, mixed media art pieces, inserted into an art journal, etc.  Heat embossing will kick up your project a notch.  It creates an elegant raised line, or, when used more freely, adds artistic texture to any piece you're working on.  We'll extend some of our watercolor techniques from Class 1 and combine them with Heat Embossing to create exciting new looks.  Class members are encouraged to bring completed samples from previous classes to "show and tell" at the nest class.  Class 3 is Heat Embossing. There is a supply fee of $25 per class that is payable when you register. Supplies that you'll take home are a Versamark Pad, a jar of embossing powder, and a glitter brush.  You can sign up for one or all 3 - call for details.
