About This Class

In this class, you'll learn five quick and easy ways to create colorful, unique backgrounds for your art journal pages and other mixed media art. Each technique can be combined with others to form beautiful collaged papers that can be embellished with paints, inks, and other ephemera that you already have in your supply cabinet. 

This class is perfect for those beginning their art journaling journey as well as more experienced artists on the hunt for new techniques to integrate into their work. This class uses watercolors, brush markers, acrylics, and block printing ink to add color and texture to papers of all types.
