Hello creative souls,
I’m so excited to share this fun winter wonderland workshop with you!
I absolutely love creating story art, and especially on wood-slices.
There’s something so organic about it, and I feel it connects us to nature in a special way when we create.
In this project I will also show you my acrylic techniques on wood, and how you can turn your story art into into dreamcatchers as well. We will create an intention of Safe Passage into the New Year as we create together.
The winter holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year. This project can even be enjoyed together with your kids or grandkids – just as my boys enjoyed creating together with me.
It also makes a thoughtful gift for a loved one, or simply a special holiday ornament for all to enjoy
