$135.00 per person



About this experience

Do you like collecting ephemera, vintage images and findings, and you have a soft spot for a touch of nostalgia in your art?

Would you like to combine traditional collaging and scrapbooking techniques with mixed-media products and beautiful-looking effects? Would you like to work on a collage project or altered frame that will honour your memories or a special person, or simply play with a vintage look, layering, and dimensional composition? “Grungy Nostalgia” is a perfect class for you and a great transition from the world of cardmaking, junk journalling and scrapbooking into an exciting realm of mixed-media!

During this class, we will build beautiful layers, starting with exciting collage background ideas, going through dimensional compositions based on embellishments and found objects, and finally working on colours based on my favourite Art Alchemy Paints, Waxes and Effects. You will be working with premium-quality 7 Dots Studio scrapbooking papers, beautiful embellishments, and the best art mediums, and you will learn how to pull them all together to get a stunning, well-balanced, and inspiring look. You will be encouraged to include your treasures in the composition and get a lot of freedom in your colour and finish choices to get the result you will love and cherish.

All the techniques can be easily used on many other projects, such as home decor, altered objects, or journal pages. The project is suitable for both advanced and beginning students.
