Quick, Fun Backgrounds and Decorative Techniques with Nicola Dunn

August 4, 2018 @ 10:00 am


A summer holiday workshop, with no stress where we will cover a range of background techniques and a few paper folding/embossing projects too – time permitting.We will start with paste painting and paper marbling using shaving foam as a base, then a bit of printing using fun foam sheets. In the afternoon we will do the ‘cleaner’ techniques of paper embossing and make Lotus folded cards and flip lop cards using some of the decorated papers from the morning session. If you get hooked on one particular method, you can of course, continue with that and opt out of some of the others. We are covering a lot of things, but once you have the idea you can continue to explore and create at home. A day to play and let your pens have a holiday.
