What Is the Difference in the Looks of Daisies & Chamomile?

Daisies and chamomile flowers look similar when compared side-by-side, but the individual species have unique characteristics that make each flower stand on its own. Herbalists and other natural health practitioners often use chamomile for its medicinal properties, while daisies are usually only grown for their beauty. Both types of flowers grow naturally all across North America.

Dance

Combine simple techniques and fun materials to create three radiant works of art!

Discover the no-rules approach to creativity as instructor Andrea Todt guides you through essential mixed-media art techniques. Start the class with a primary colour composition, and explore paint, pen and ink techniques to create bold textures. Find out how to mix stunning shades of a single hue as you progress to a monochromatic work, and experiment with stencils, paint washes and markers for eye-catching designs. Dive into basic color theory with your final project and learn how to select a captivating, cohesive color scheme. You’ll finish three beautiful pieces you’ll be proud to hang in your home!

The first step of a Gelli Plate Print really looks basic. It is a very basic technique – everybody can do it. If you have chosen your colour combination of acrylic paints, off to go!!! When I have started with pulling the first paper, I saw myself this doing all evening long. I’m excited to go forward to the next step: basic technique + stencils. After you have created a bunch of different patterns, you will be amazed what you can do with it.
Gelli plates are cost-intensive to buy. I have invested in different sizes to offer more possibilities for my art workshops.
