Fantasy bird postcards, a mixed media project.

 I published my class! You are welcome to take a look! 

In this class you learn  to make your own unique collage paper. It is super fun and easy. Specially for beginners but I'm sure advanced mixed media artists can also be inspired by this lesson.  With the home made collage paper you are going to make fantasy birds on postcards. So you can either send them to loved ones or put them into a frame to hang on your own wall.

This lesson is all about playing and having fun (and making a little bit of mess...). You are going to play with paint and drawing materials. To feel free and loose. We cut the paper into little pieces and glue them on postcards.

I show you how you can turn these pieces into fantasy birds.

You need:
Paper: plain print paper, magazines, old books or newspaper paper.

Waterproof  markers for example: posca pens 

Acrylic paint

A large flat brush and a smaller brush

A palet

Acrylic ink or waterproof ink and a calligraphy pen

A simple stamp

A cloth

Glue: gel medium matt and a glue stick

Blanc postcards, I use 10 x 15 cm. (4 x 5 3/4 inch)


A watersoluble pencil in a dark color

(a water brush)
