Craft Month 2013: Book of Haiku from Layered Impressions

001-009_Y3383.inddLayered Impressions: A Poetic Approach to Mixed-Media Painting by Katie Kendrick

Layered Impressions is the muse you need to marry your love of written expression and your passion for paint, revealing the colors of your true nature—the whispers from your soul. Katie Kendrick leads you into her world of impressionistic painting and shares her techniques for creating art that is as authentic and multilayered as you are. Through projects such as a mobile-like wall hanging, a soulful doll, a handmade frame or a quilted journal, you’ll learn to use a variety of mediums, while learning much about yourself in the process.

With Layered Impressions, there is much to explore:

  • Prior to painting, use writing exercises to release imagery and feelings, expanding self-awareness and providing elements you can bring into your artwork.
  • Taking cues from the Masters, explore different styles and find elements that work together for you.
  • Deepen your personal sense of community and purpose with “giving back” ideas at the end of each project.

Expect the unexpected and see what lies between your own unique layers with Layered Impressions.

In our final Craft Month 2013 project from Layered Impressions, you’ll create your own Book of Haiku and learn mixed-media techniques like spreading inks, sgrafitto and finding hidden images. Download the project now:
