We will be using acrylic paints, stencils, found objects, stamps and gel transfers to create a series of stunning background pages for your art journal. We will follow our imaginations to create pages similar to those on display. Each pager will be a work of art in itself, but will also be awaiting your words of wisdom, quotes or further art work.

Come join the Treasured Memories Staff and Trisha Ladouceur to create a fantastic unique piece of art and learn some new techniques at the same time.
Unlike any other class or workshop you have attended in the past, this one is sure to release your inner artsite from within. Subway Wall Art allows you to create your own collage masterpiece that is sure to inspire you to create many more in the coming days and weeks. We will play with numerous transfer techniques while altering a large canvas into an amazing work of art! With numerous choices along the way there is no possible way that any two projects will be the same!
You will have your choice of canvas size... either a 12"X24" (rectangular) or a 16"X16" (large Square)... please specify upon registration. There will also be two different themes to choose from... a Parisian inspired collection of images or a vintage botanical theme or perhaps you wish to use both? Do not limit yourself to the amazing possibilities that will come to fruition allowing EVERYONE to become a true ARTISTE even when they think it's not possible.
This mixed media collage class is by far one of the favourite classes of my attendees at classes worldwide and lights a fire to create many, many more variations.
