Paint! Ink! Emboss! Beautiful Backgrounds for Mixed Media, Cards and More

Grab your paints, your embossing powders and your inks (and skip the manicure) for this inspiration-loaded workshop!

Do you love the look of colorful, textured, layered backgrounds, but aren’t quite sure how to start? Maybe you love making backgrounds and want some fresh inspiration? Or maybe you just need to get your creative muscles moving! Then this workshop is for you.

We’re focusing on basic supplies, so this is a great chance to raid your own craft stash for acrylic paints, stamping ink refills and all those colored embossing powders. (We’re even sneaking in some simple foiling accents, too!) We’ll put them all to good use creating one-of-a-kind backgrounds ready to use in your art.

But wait…what to do with those fabulous backgrounds? Don’t put them in a pile—we’ll look at ways to use them, in handmade cards, collages, tag art and journal covers.

I’ll step you through the layering process, demonstrating how to apply the mediums, then show you a card, journal cover or other finished piece to get your inspiration going. You’ll have access to photos of each background and finished piece, plus a “recipe” of specific supplies and the layering process.

So whether you’re new to backgrounds, or need a dash of inspiration, I hope you’ll join the fun in Paint! Ink! Emboss!
