Masking Demystified

Instructor – Darlene with Stampland

Cost $25

Description:  Masking used to be an annoying technique but now, using the art masking tape, you will discover that it is a simple and amazing way to create collages, patterns, and backgrounds. Combining images and layering with the tape will inspire you to use stamps in new exciting ways. Using brushes and art tapes I will teach you how to add depth and dimension to your STAMPLAND images, using the new STAMPLAND templates. These have been laser cut to match the stamp images. You will learn how to create shadows and how to design backgrounds using the templates and brushes. You will meet the “Magic” Bird Cage and learn how to reverse images easily and effectively. See why the lady artist and her easel can be a source of inspiration and fun. Basic coloring advice is also included at no extra charge.

Supplies to bring: A padded stamping surface, colored pencils, a ruler and scissors. A sense of fun is helpful. All other supplies will be provided.
