When is the last time you did something just for you?

Tapping into your creativity is such an important part of self-care. Do you find yourself getting to the end of each day and just feeling depleted and uninspired?

Life's demands can be overwhelming, leaving little room for personal rejuvenation. But here's a reminder: you deserve moments dedicated solely to your well-being and creativity.

Do you struggle with composition?

I will walk you through my process for arranging the ephemera on the cover so you can feel confident about the process.

Have you ever used Powertex?

Whether you have used Powertex before or not, you will feel comfortable and excited about the process. I will share lots of tips and best practices with you along the way! Powertex is an eco-friendly product and easy to use. After this project, your head will be swimming with ideas for your next project!

Are you interested in being more eco-friendly with your art?

We will be using recycled material to create the Powertex mixed media cover. Also, Powertex is such an eco-friendly product and very safe to use.

Did you know that Powertex is AP certified?

The AP Seal identifies art materials that are safe and certified in a toxicological evaluation by a medical expert to contain no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans, including children, or to cause acute or chronic health problems. Children in grade six and lower, and adults who may not be able to read and understand safety labeling should use only non-toxic materials. The AP Seal ensures products are non-toxic when used as intended for young children, the physically or mentally handicapped, and any persons who cannot read or understand the safety labeling on product packages.

Hi, I'm Kassy!

I love all the art. I am a mixed media artist that loves to push the boundaries and try new things. I became obsessed with paper crafting more than 20 years ago and never looked back. I also have a passion for teaching other creatives to try new things and be brave when faced with a blank page. I love bridging the gap between the paper craft and fine art worlds to see what we can create together!
