Blurred Edges

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!
  • $85
  • 6 lessons
  • Class begins April 2nd

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! 

one of the lessons - blurred edges journal page

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!)
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
neon pink colored pencil
Dina brushes (specifically the rounds)
stylus for scratching into paint or just use a nail
Big brush for large washes of color
Lindy's stamp gang sprays - these are optional! Cape cod coral and bodacious blush

paint colors: 
titanium white matte (make sure this is the matte white. the texture is different!)
a light pink 

Tim Holtz paint colors:  walnut staintea dye are the must haves. Pick other colors that you are drawn to.
I will also be using crushed olive frequently and the spun sugar and worn lipstick for lips, etc. (but you could also just use the pink and neon red from above) 
***NOTE there may be a few supplies that are added as I continue to film the class. I'll keep you all posted!
