Have fun learning to use the art of Collage combined with the craft of Decoupage plus the techniques of Distress Painting and Resin-Glazing to make one-of-a-kind trinkets and décor. Discover the artist as well as the artisan in you while producing pieces you never knew you could make with your own hands. It doesn’t matter if you can’t draw or paint— magazine and paper cutouts provide the elements of your creations, your own masterpieces you can wear and use in your home.
- Prepping wooden surfaces by painting with a distressed finish.
- Cutting paper and magazines and composing to make the collages and trinkets.

About the Instructor
Freelance art director/ graphic designer Marita de Leon had always wanted to find a form of personal artistic expression after working in advertising for a long time. She attended a resin jewelry making workshop at CraftMNL and discovered that it was a fun way to be creative. After months of practicing and experimenting, she started giving her pieces to family members and selling to friends. After realizing that she could make it a business, she started Handmade Lemonade and started joining bazaars.
Marita, like all makers, loves what she does and finds crafting a source of happiness. She recommends it to everyone! Her tagline is “If life gives you lemons, squeeze the creative juices out of ‘em!”
