Hey there! Well it took me awhile to get this through my head...but after hearing quite regularly that you only made one piece of art (or sometimes none at all) after taking one of my workshops on-line, in person or on DVD because of the supplies that were needed...well I finally came up with an answer. It took my very own studio assistant, who had taken a class last year, telling me that she had never made another one because of all the supplies needed....that I thought "wait a minute here." So, I have put together specific art kits for Collage Camp students and one for Mixed Media Collage Book students (one of the projects in the Altered Book workshop). I have gathered up small amounts of things you don't have to track down and I have even taken care of the messy and time consuming coffee-staining for you! How about that?
This way you can do a project or 2 and not have to invest in canvas yardage etc. I have offered bits and baubles from my studio along with DVD's in KC in a Box before....but I have never offered the kit you would need to make a piece of collage art or a collage book. All of the details along with a full list of what is in the art kits are at www.studioretreats.ning.com on the Main page or at www.collagecamp.ning.com on the Main Page. I am pretty excited about opening up the possibilites of my signature style to you a wee bit easier.The kits come in color choices and with and without the DVD's versions of the workshops. And I know that for some it is not easy to get the photos ready to print for the transfers. I am offering help with that too. You can e-mail your photo (s) to me and I will transfer them for you (for a small fee), so when when your kit arrives...your photos are enclosed, on coffee-stained canvas...ready to go. Now the fun can begin!
If you've taken the workshops then you know exactly what I am talking about....but if you haven't they are available on-line at www.collagecamp.ning.com or in DVD version in KC in a Box. The possibilities are endless...and I am trying like heck to make it as easy for you as I can to make cool collage art. :-)
