Boho Grunge

taught by Gwen Lafleur

Course description

Thanks for joining me for "Boho Grunge!" I hope you enjoy the project and techniques in this course as much as I enjoyed sharing them.

Throughout this course, I'll share some of my tips and tricks for creating backgrounds and integrating collage elements, building up the foreground, and putting together a dimensional boho-style focal point using a variety of new and vintage materials. Along the way, I'll share some of the design principles that I use to help create a stronger composition as well as techniques for making different metals look the same, how to make non-metal objects look like metal, and how to create a faux-rust finish with paints and embossing powder. 

This course shows the process of creating a boho-grunge style mixed media panel from start to finish, and it's been broken into sections to make it easy to follow along and work on your own project as we go. We have provided a link so you can conveniently purchase this course's supplies from StencilGirlProducts

Loved BOHO grunge

by Margaret Richardson
Great techniques and beautifully demonstrated!

Terrific Title

by Ellen Berne
This is a wonderful class. It is chock full off techniques and tips that are invaluable to create successful mixed media pieces. Thank you very much for a well thought out online course. I will refer back to it many times. I had not seen paint priming metal before. This was an added surprise included in the video. Paint priming was by far the best segment. Great Stuff!

Excellent Class!

Global Grunge Love

by Maura Hibbitts
First off, Gwen is an amazing teacher! Love her style of explaining and demonstrating every step, in a calm and relaxed way, and bringing in many elements from her world travels. She has such a creative soul! Wonderful class, I really appreciate the many techniques Gwen shares with us, and especially love how she pulls everything together with the dirty glaze - that alone is worth the price of the class, LOL! Fantastic class, Gwen! Many thanks! Namaste, Maura

Enjoyable Class

by Linda Williams
I liked the collage process and how to unify metal pieces and make them appear rusty or old. I now have lots of ideas to try for my own works of art.
