We will be creating a self-standing art piece by embedding organic elements between two layers of translucent paper ‘skins’. The result is a misty and mysterious collection of sealed treasures.

Our substrate will be an accordioned art book of sturdy watercolor paper. A myriad of papers will form windows of embedded natural elements, utilizing positive and negative space through translucency.

We will be inscribing our marks by burning holes through some the papers near the end. Bamboo sticks will weave through hasp openings for a stand-alone art piece.

 Materials Fee $ 20.00 in cash paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

Translucent papers (incl. rice paper, teabags, tissue, rusted papers and more), precut watercolor paper, burning implements, bamboo sticks, ties, wire, needle and thread, beads, stamps, embossing powder and ink, heat gun, extra organic elements if needed.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:
Assorted pressed and flat organic elements (leaves, wildflowers, small seeds and sticks, feathers etc.), bone folder, ruler, scissors, pencil and eraser, matte fluid medium (Liquitex is what I use), soft paint brushes for medium, paper towels

Optional items: craft heat gun, apron
