Affirmation Cards & ATC Play Day with Helen Hallows



Our creative souls need time to play and to explore. We need to refill our creative well. Taking care of your well-being takes care of you and allows you to nurture your creativity. This course balances colour and emotion with intention and connecting with your creative soul. If you love to create editions of cards that you can send to friends and trade as Artist Trading Cards then this is for you! If you love to create miniature works of art as cards or gifts this is for you! If your creative spirit connects you to your soul and affirmations are part of your visual language then this is for you!

What's included in the price?

In this online class I will show you how I create layered mixed media backgrounds to create an edition of cards. I will take you on a journey with using symbols to express your heart's art. We will look at using colour to express mood and text to add affirmations. You will end the course with a set of cards that you can swap with other creatives or use to build your own oracle (affirmation) card deck.

Hello! I am Helen. Over the time of my creative work I realised I take great enjoyment from processing ideas in sketchbooks, gathering and using sketchbooks as starting points for future projects. I can help you get past the fear of the white page. I can help you fall in love with creative process. I can help you stop being obsessed with the end point of art and find a step by step way to creative flow. Each workshop covers a part of what I do - making sketchbooks, drawing with confidence, printing pattern - all inspired by the wonders of nature. I want you to come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity.
