Mixed Media Mania at The Little Blue House!


Hi it's Susan Tidwell, I want to share with you my project for our May's Mixed Media Mania.
 This is the fun project I will be teaching on May 6th.
 The triptych is a custom 2-pc wood arch with two side panels that students will create from book board. Then the fun will begin with texturing and coloring the surface with some great new paints and products from Art Anthology, Faber Castell, Viva Decor and Ranger.

This was designed as a frame suitable for a Mother's Day gifts, but could be used for many different occasions. I used a photo of my mother as a young married woman in the center and a quote for mothers, but more photos could also be added on the side panels.

Here are some closeups showing more of the texture and color.

Here are the Details: 
Mixed Media Mania
Tuesday May 6th
10am-1pm or 6pm-9pm

Cost: $45.00

If you are interested in taking this class Please call or Come by the LBH!
