It's September - 2 reasons to be happy today : it's the beginning of Spring here in New Zealand and the start of a free online class :: Artful Card-Making Techniques with Jane LaFazio and Joanne Sharpe. Sneak preview HERE. And these are the blurbs ::
Jane LaFazio (weeks 1-2) : A blank card is much like a blank canvas. Unlimited potential! Jane will guide you in sketching and watercoloring an original card in a step-by-step, clear, easy method using Strathmore blank cards. She’ll also show you how to artfully collage cards, with paper, fabric, glue and with stitching for all kinds of occasions. This workshop will inspire you to create original cards that will be cherished by those who receive them.
Joanne Sharpe (weeks 3-4) : Joanne Sharpe will share her popular artful lettering techniques and color rich design ideas to make a collection of whimsical cards. Explore a variety of playful hand lettering styles and simple illustrations to showcase greeting card sentiments and messages. Combine assorted mixed media techniques with creative lettering tools to adorn your mini masterpieces.

I love making cards - this is my most recent creation for a friend.
Wonder what I'll learn in the workshop
