EVEN BEGINNERS CAN MAKE AN AMAZING TEXTURED ART MASTERPIECE
This one is a DOOZY! You can join me in a FREE full length video workshop (click on the video below). You can easily make a beautiful work of art with a few tools and supplies. (*kids get your parents help and permission with this project). I hope you have as much fun making your own as I did 🙂
Follow along as I create a mixed media artwork from start to finish. Even a beginner can create a masterpiece!
We start by creating our own “glue gun” stencils that we will use to add pattern and texture to our AMAZING artwork. Follow along as I show you step-by-step how to make an original AMAZING mixed media artwork.
