 Family Motto Words To Live By


This workshop is all about family values! It’s your family mission; it’s who you are and what you’re all about. As with all my workshops, you will experience a variety of mixed media techniques with focus on effective use of adhesives (no bumps), stamping and blending oil pastel. Color, typography and a sweet burlap backing makes a statement in this project, but your unique family “rules” the heart of this piece. Project measures 11x14”. Great for empty nesters (Grandma and Grandpa Creed) or newlyweds (Marriage Mission).
