NOTE: You will still have access to the course classrooms on my site and can work at your own pace. This course will just not be available for purchase after June 10.

Tap into your playful spirit in this workshop as we create a colorful painted, stamped and doodled fabric wristlet and matching journal. You will find yourself reaching for this step by step 16 video workshop again and again to create handmade gifts or your own mini art journals.

As a bonus, watch me use a Gelli Plate to create a quick and easy layered background for our custom fabric. Then you decide whether to use a Gelli Plate OR paint and stencils for your background. Using EITHER method we will create a layered artsy custom fabric for our handmade projects.
