VA125 - Inner Child Tags

Mindy Lacefield
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday October 4

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

I love the idea of creating on small, non-precious materials such as manilla tags. I feel a sort of freedom in the simple. We will create two or three folk art, primitive tags using lots of layers. We will create from the nostalgia of our 8 year olds selves and worry less about the outcome…..and focus on the process of getting our hands in the paint. Working quickly, we let go…..have fun…..and channel our inner child.

white gesso
ephemera - old book pages, song books, old receipts, tissue paper
collage pauge or mod podge - matte
