One of the main goals of creating is to play and have fun. In this class, that’s exactly what Cindy Gilstrap encourages! She’ll demonstrate different ways of adding mixed media layers to a blank page to create fun and colorful backgrounds. You’ll then see how she uses those backgrounds to make other unique projects that prove—when it comes to creativity—the possibilities really are endless!

I liked learning Cindy's "recipe" for creating background. Using alternating warm and cool color families is something new to me and a way of choosing color that I will continue to play with. Thank you.
