Recycle Your Art


Lesson Info

Letter Masking

Do you struggle with what to do with old art projects that you don't have the heart to toss, but no longer want to display? Andrea Chebeleu will show you how to get more mileage out of your earlier endeavors in Recycle Your Art.

Andrea started out as a professional scrapbooker, but her interest in all-things-art called her to establish a studio that teaches a whole range of creative techniques. In this class, she’ll help you see the potential in pages from your art journal and show you how to make digital versions of your real life work. You’ll learn:

  • Photographing and copying tips (no special software needed!)
  • The best method for the smooth application of collage paper to canvas
  • A foolproof masking technique and how to add shadows for depth and dimension
  • Which paint and glue options are best for paper art projects
Not all art journaling experiments are 100% successful. But, most pages have several redeeming factors – recycling that work is a simple way to take the parts you love and make more art with them.

If you are looking for a fun, playful way to have more fun with your existing work, don’t miss Recycle Your Art with Andrea Chebeleu.



  • I was expecting someting very different when I selected this class. It demonstrates one technique, and one technique only. During the entire video, the instructor reference procedures covered in other videos, which which I was not familiar, but the instructor assumes the viewer knows about these procedures. The technique presented in this video entails utilizing a particular process which is essential to completing the project, but it necessitates using a laser cutting machine, which not everyone has or even has access to, and which would be very expensive to purchase. I think this should be made clear to would-be viewers, as the class is basically useless without this machine. This class is a complete waste of money, brains, and time.
