About this course
Harvest Moon with Friends is a mixed media course offering so many new techniques.
You will create 5 different paintings + lettering quotes + harvest moon wall hanging + surprise lesson
Two paintings of Miss Fox (yes, I will take you step by step) even if you have never ever drawn before you will have lovely little paintings.
Two paintings of Mr. Owl
Lettering (my signature style of pen and ink) I will walk you through this using India ink (no previous lettering experience needed)
One painting of the teal moon glowing with a beautiful quote.
We will stitch a harvest moon cut from canvas. Beading, stitching, paint layering all partner with a twig or two.
By the harvest moon, we will open our creative glow to honor natures gifts while playing with woodland creatures.
Perfect for learning new ways of seeing. Honored to be your guide.
With love under the moon who watches over each of us every night.

paper + canvas + embroidery threads
I first stumbled on this wonderful Dylusions Square Creative Journal with black paper pages about one year ago. Immediately I loved the thick good quality paper. However, I started taking out the pages and painting art on the pages individually. Not using it as a journal.
So if you have a nice thick black paper you love USE IT!
I am only recommending this because I LOVE IT!!!
Embroidery threads - colors of golds and neutrals.
Canvas 8 x 10
