Create an abstracted 3D floral design on canvas, with the bonus of eye-catching fabric accents. If you are looking for a way to create that is low-stress and always successful, this is it! One of my most-used phrases is, “There is no wrong way!” You will be encouraged to create in your own unique style, in a relaxed, no-pressure setting.
Class One - I’ll show you how to create flowers out of simple, easy- to-create parts that will then fit together to make more complex pieces. You will also design your piece, adhere the fabric to the canvas, and add texture pastes.
Class Two - Today, you’ll assemble your flowers, paint, bling, and varnish your piece. I’ll show you how using water can help to create luscious, blended colors and unusual effects and we will use added bling to make our flowers sparkle and glow!
