Blurred Edges - online course
**********These classes are now self work meaning that I am no longer monitoring the classroom, answering questions, or offering support for work that you create inside this particular class. If however, you have a pressing question and would like to get in touch with me please email me directly.
***NOTE: you will be contacted with 24 hours with instruction on how to gain access to the classroom. An email invite will be sent to the email address associated with your etsy account. If you want me to send the invite to a different email, please leave me a note in the "notes to seller" section at checkout.
Juicy texture. Blurred edges. To give up the idea that perfection is beautiful. Imperfection is real. Imperfection is the most beautiful. It's where the cracks are. It's where we stitched together our heart and came out stronger.
I am taking you along the Blurred edges of painting. To journey into the unexpected. The vulnerable place where you want to fix things but must leave them as they are. To celebrate their beauty for what they are....cracks and crevices filled with juicy color, scribbles, and your beautiful mistakes.
We will surprise ourselves. Creating accidents. Fostering mistakes. For that is where the magic lies!
How long will I have access to the course? Lifetime access. Videos are downloadable
Do I need all the supplies on the supply list? No, I am all about using what you have on hand. I will be working mainly with Tim Holtz paints because they move nicely when activated by water. You can use any fluid acrylics that you may have on hand. (Ground espresso and tea dye Tim Holtz colors are the most important ones)
Will there be a Facebook group? yes, there will be a private Facebook group so that you can share and get to know your fellow creatives!
catalyst wedge - no 6 (the gray one)
Utrecht gesso white: this gesso is super thick and holds nice texture.
any pencil - I am using a faber castell 7 b pencil and a stabilo graphite
flower stamps: here or here or any of these (or any stamp you like!)
any foam flower stamps
journal for experimenting (I use Jane davenport 9x12 journal)
wood board - I'll be using 12x12 and 8x8. 10x10 is also acceptable
green ochre Pablo pencil (or any yellowish green colored pencil you have on hand) and a few other colored pencils. I like the Pablo caran d'ache and prismacolor colored pencils

Tim Holtz paint colors: walnut stain, tea dye are the must haves. Pick other colors that you are drawn to.
