Bring your art journal and turn it into your own personal book of inspiration. Combining beautiful watercolor paints and mixed media, you will learn how to make intriguing journal pages that will be the perfect backdrop for adding your words. We will be adding our favorite, inspiring quotes, poetry, and words of wisdom as well as decorations, angels, charming watercolor sketches, hearts and ribbons. We will also add pockets and other dimensional objects to add a component of mystery and engaging the reader to explore beyond the flat surface of the page. Artists are very tactile and inserting dimensional objects adds a component of pretty surprises, engaging the reader to explore beyond the flat dimension of the page.

** (From above...) This workshop is fun for all levels of watercolor painters. I welcome new beginner watercolor enthusiasts as well as more advanced students to participate in all my classes. Whether you consider yourself to be a new or advanced painter, we all start at the beginning and will become better and better painters the more we paint. As we learn new and exciting techniques, we begin to get a feel of how the water interacts with the paint and the paper. Desire and passion are what are needed to be successful watercolor painters, with artistic talent being a bonus! I will have fun projects for all levels and each person will be working at their level. I always tell my students, "Put miles on your brushes!". This is a great workshop for learning how to keep your watercolors fresh and vibrant.
