About this Course
"Give Thanks" is a perfect accent for your Fall decorations and a gentle reminder to be thankful for the harvest bounty....it's a whimsical painted and paper collage canvas full of pumpkins, a pear, a starry moonlit night and vining leaves and tendrils. This 14" x 18" painted turquoise and white pumpkins wall art is perfect to build your Autumn theme around. Created by my love of turquoise and all things Fall, this piece goes together quicker than one can say "simmering apple cider and pumpkin pie".
"Give Thanks" is perfect piece to reflect on all the many blessing we have and bring the beauty of garden bounty into our homes.
The 1 1/2 hour video takes you through the entire process from painting the canvas to sealing the finished piece.
Pattern pieces are in a pdf ready to be printed and transferred to your paper selections. Papers, paints, stamps, accessories and embellishments are all discussed. Once all the pieces are collected, the project can be completed in approximately 4 hours.
This piece has you learning how to layer and texture several colors of paint, choose and layer different papers for a balanced yet interesting look. We will also add paint and stamped texture over layered papers for more depth and interest. Glitter, 3 D stars and Mod Podge finish it up.
About the instructor
Giving others the tools and confidence to create their own art is one of the things I love about teaching. Over the years I have taught from one-on-one design mentoring to trade show classrooms with classes ranging from greeting cards to art quilt embellishment.
My work has been featured in many books and magazines, art galleries and also included design work for other stamp and ink manufacturers. Designing and manufacturing my own line of rubber stamps and also owning a retail paper and rubber stamp art store helped push my creative limits. This highlighted my natural ability to inspire others and gave me an outlet for the work I love to do.
