Project Description

Your class project is an open-ended invitation to use the techniques presented in the class to create your own mixed media art papers. Share a page or share a finished project that uses one or more of the techniques taught in these lessons. I'll be looking forward to seeing the many different ways that students in this class have used these ideas in their own mixed media projects! 

If you have an "a-ha!" moment or inspiration to share, post a note in the Community discussion threads or share a photo on the Class Projects page. And if you enjoyed this class, be sure to "Follow" my Skillshare channel to get updates whenever new projects are posted to this class or new classes are added to my channel. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your work ... after all, we're here on Skillshare to learn from one another!
