Discover the many different aspects of art journalling with an exciting and adventurous combination of mixed media techniques. All of the techniques are simple to achieve but they give stunning effects, that can be combined to make unusual and tactile pages to suit your own personal style of art journal. We will be exploring colour mixing, pattern making with stencils, fabric inclusions, cutting, tearing and layering, illustration, and some interactive pages.
