We were so inspired by Roxanne’s visit a couple weeks ago that we are starting a book club to go through her newly released “Acrylic Techniques” book. Over a 7 week period we will be meeting weekly to try techniques and challenges we find in the book. I will supply all the materials you need but you are welcome to bring special papers, fabrics, texture making tools if you wish.
Here is an outline of what we will be doing each week:
Chapter 1 – May 9(or 10) – Fear No Color (Making color wheel tags, mixing brown, tints and shades)
Chapter 2 – May 16(or 17) (week 1) – Its Elementary (substrates: Magazine Pages, Black & White Copies, Mark Making pt. 1)
Chapter 2 – May 23 (or 24) (week 2) – Its Elementary (substrates: canvas, fabric, Mark Making pt 2)
Chapter 3 – May 29 (or 30) (week 1) Printing Techniques (rubbings, colllagraphs)
Chapter 3 – June 6 (or 7) (week2) Printing Techniques (Stamping, found objects)
Chapter 4 – June 13 (or 14)- Stenciling & Painting (stenciling tools, cutting stencils, layering stencils)

Sign up for all 7 sessions for $30 per session…pick and choose which sessions and pay $40 per session
While the main point of this video is to show you how to make your own full sheets of double sided foam tape…the example I am using is a green crafting project making a tiled mirror with old starbux cards.
Here is the mirror with the tiles laid out…I still need to paint the background then peel and stick them into place.
