Mixed Media Christmas Decor Layout Class - Authentique Solitude

Welcome back!

Because many were interested in creating my project in a class, it was decided to have a 2nd mixed media class! I know many of you have already seen the photos for this project, so this will just be a class posting.


Authentique "Solitude" Christmas Decor Project

WHEN: Saturday, December 8th

TIME: 9:30 am - 1:00pm

COST: $35 + GST

If you have always wanted to try out Mixed Media, or if you have always wanted to have some Christmas wall decor, or if you just love vintage or shabby chic things, this will be a class that you will enjoy!

Why not take down some of the framed wall hangings you have in your home all year round to make way for some Christmas themed ones to take their place for a few weeks! You can this as you see in the photo, or replace one of the images with a photo (will need to bring that to class).

You will learn how to create a spritz colour using ink refillers and water. How to use water on that and make the ink run while heat drying to create a basic colour  backdrop on top of stencilled on texture. You will also love applying the art stones to create interest and texture to this layout.

Your Homework will include Distressing paper edges on the smaller pieces used, painting laser cut chipboard pieces with white gesso, inking Poinsettias edges lightly with Gathered Twigs, and leaves with Oxide Iced Spruce & then a little with reg Distress  Gathered Twigs, and assembling the Poinsettias, and painting your pinecone twigs and applying the NUVO Red Autumn Crystal Drops to parts to make them look like berries. Homework should be ready for pick up the evening of Wednesday, November 28th.

PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Paper trimmer, reg craft scissors & large pair for cutting cardboard, pencil, eraser, non-stick mat (mixed media glass mat if you have one), apron to cover your clothes, hand wipes, jar of water with lid, paper towel, heat tool, blending tool, stencils to choose from (does not matter what the pattern is & I will bring mine), Distress Ink Refillers - Iced Spruce & Gathered Twigs, 3 Mini-Misters, Distress Ink pad - Gathered Twigs, White Gesso, Clear Gesso, Matte Texture Paste OR Liquitex Ceramic Stucco, Matte Gel Medium (will have some there if you need), Prima Marketing Art Stones (med) (will have some there if you need), NUVO Mousse - Mother of Pearl, wide and narrow flat paint brushes (have a couple I will bring), Prima Marketing 2" silicone brush if you have (have one I will bring)  OR a 1" - 1 1/4" flat brush (have one I will bring),  1 - 2 plastic lid/s for mixing things in, NUVO Crystal Drops - Autumn Red, & Wedgewood Blue, white foam squares or tape, and one or two flaps from a corrugated cardboard box.
