Please note that this is a Thursday start date so that you can get logged in and join the forum ready to make the most of the weekend ahead.


Our creative souls need time to play and to explore. We need to refill our creative well.


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!


As I have grown as a creative I have realised the essential act of feeding my creativity and empowering myself to create from my soul. As a yogi, I use affirmations in my practice and my oracle cards grew out of this intention setting. 


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 trade or use to build your won oracle deck. 


Materials you will need for the class:


Heavy cartridge or watercolour paper - or pre-bought ATC card blanks

acrylic paints or inks (or use what you have)

coloured papers to use for collage (collect book pages, envelopes, magazine pages)

magazine pages to cut from, paper ephemera (Tim Holtz packs)

a printer to print downloads

coloured pencils/pens

Posca Pens (optional but I love them)

Letter stamps (optional but I use them lots in my cards)


The course content can be accessed from 10am on the start date. You will have 3 weeks access to the content.  I've planned the content to give you one full on day of creativity or you can spread it over a couple of days or a week of evenings.
