Fodder School 1 is a year-long online mixed media art course with a different artist teaching each month, which you can join anytime. For the first half of each month, you learn mixed media techniques to make different types of fodder, which you then use in the second half of the month to create an exciting project so by the end of the year, you have 11 beautiful projects and a huge toolkit of mixed media techniques! Follow along with me on my Fodder School Journey!
It’s been another lovely month of mixed media with a hint of craftiness! The more I progress through Fodder School, the more I am realising how much I enjoy this combination.
For the first half of the month, we worked on creating watercolour backgrounds and watercolour nature and floral elements using stencils. Megan showed us some really interesting ways of using watercolours with stencils to create some beautiful results. I find this kind of activity really meditative and calming.
For the second half of the month, we created beautiful assemblages, combining our watercolour backgrounds with our nature & floral elements along with vintage photos (thanks Jane Chipp for the free downloads). I also chose to add some fabric to my assemblages along with a quick whizz on the sewing machine for some extra texture!
I used my own stencils for the floral and nature elements – click here to view my stencil range.
I absolutely loved creating these and experimenting with different colours and combinations of fodder. I can’t wait to create more and use them in art journals and handmade book as a ready made embellishments.
Megan’s unique methods and her inspiring assemblages resulted in a very exciting month, with a new way to combine fodder, which I will use again and again!
