Printed Paper with Acrylic Paint

Presented by Michele Kamprath and Sandy Vrem 

Join us for this fun and playful workshop where we will spend time stamping and decorating papers with metallic acrylic paint and gel pens that we can then use to make cards and other projects. We will share with you techniques we learned at a workshop given by Cheri Aldrich at the Newport Paper Arts Festival, Spring 2011. The March workshop will include instructions for creating beautiful text weight papers decorated with commercial and handmade rubber stamps, sponges, bubble wrap, screens, feathers and other found objects. We will use black text weight paper with metallic paint along with markers, gel pens and colored pencils to highlight our designs. After we have created decorated papers we will use them to make cards or an accordion book to display our work. We will  bring in samples to give you ideas of what you can do with your beautiful papers. Note: Don’t buy anything for this workshop; we will have lots of stuff you can use.
