The Deconstructed Pages
$95 plus HST

Join Catherine Scanlon and learn everything you need to know about a new and creative art form sweeping the Mixed Media community – Monoprinting using the Gelli Arts Gelli Plate. Traditional Gelatin Printing required you to create a Gelatin plate using Knox Gelatin – it was messy and after a few days the Gelatin Plate was covered in mould. In order to continue printing you’d have to make a new plate – but not anymore! With the Gelli Arts plate, which is made of clear silicone – all you do is take it out of the package each time and you’re ready to play.

Monoprinting is a great way to create unique, one-of-a-kind backgrounds using both paper and fabric, this all day workshop will focus on paper. You can use your printed papers in any collage project, art journal, card making and in fact you can use them in any craft that you would use traditional patterned paper with. In the morning we’ll talk about the plate, how to use it, care for it and other basic information. Catherine will demo various techniques using a variety of tools and then will set you to work playing and experimenting with your own plate to fill the pages of your deconstructed visual journal with pattern and colour.

After a lunch break we’ll come back all refreshed and ready to add some painted details and whatever strikes your fancy to your prints and then finish up by reconstructing the visual journal on the original coil.

Sunday September 21, 2014 - 10:30am to 4pm
Art Journal ToolBox
$95 plus HST

Are you interested in Art Journaling but not sure where to start? Or maybe you aren’t sure how to create a custom journal that suits your needs? Maybe you are new to journaling and want to fill your toolbox full of cool techniques. Or maybe you have a busy life and just want to take a class and sit back and play and make art all day. If so, then this class is for you.

Mixed Media Artist Catherine Scanlon is coming to The Art House Studio to share many of her art journaling, lettering and doodling techniques using her Art Gone Wild Stamps and Stencils – no art journaling experience is required! Just bring a few supplies and the desire to get creative with other local artists.

This is an all day workshop that will leave you inspired and wanting to spend all your free time filling the pages of your journal. Catherine will also bring a few of her art journals for you to look at and be inspired by as well as share a hand-out of quotes, a piece of art to add to your journal, lettering hints and MORE.

Have a creative day!
