Learn how to prepare canvas to take different mediums. This is a full day class working with Laurie and Nadia from Lost & Found Studio on one of 3 Canvas bags.
We will walk you through the layering of color, images and words to finish with a bag that is unbelievably cool! Each one is individual to the participant and will be envied by all who see it. Embellish with funky tags and pocket ideas that we will teach you about as we wait for paint to dry. No previous experience needed just a willingness to get messy!
The class will give instruction on how to prepare the bag to take paint, color, images, and journalling. Not to mention, the coolest of the cool techniques that any one can use to spruce up flawed images and jazz up lettering ! We will explore color application as well as methods for applying layer upon layer of images that make these bags one of a kind. This is by far our messiest and loudest class we have ever taught. Don't miss the fun!

How many of you have gathered so much ribbon over the years that they don’t even make a storage system to contain your collection. But then when it comes time to use it, it just never “works”. Well this class will teach you a few techniques to use up some of that ribbon without just stringing it along the page. we personally suggest this class if you are looking for a fresh look at ribbon use.
