Take The Paper Route

Coffee-stained handmade papers, burnt edges, textures, wax on paper....yummy. For the first time my paper collage workshop is available on DVD. I take rich, textured papers, dip them in coffee, dry them, iron them, sew them....in other words treat them like fabric. As a matter of fact, I think I mistakenly refer to them as fabric more than once in the video. :-)
This is the very fun project on the workshop...abstract painting...with paper!
The possibilities are endless. Create abstracts, add images...go to town.
You can print an image on paper and add to your collage.

All you need to get going.

The workshop DVD comes in a handmade paper pouch with a layered paper collage and gypsy image on the front. An assortment of already coffee-stained papers gives you the ability to get right to work.

 I show you a really different way to make a fabric collage piece....out of paper!

Get your DVD and coffee-stained papers on the front page at Collage Camp. Working with these papers is such a delicious experience I feel just fine in saying...."Bon Appetite!

Happy New Year!

I am thrilled to be into 2011....the year of many planned changes and fun, fun stuff. I start this year finally healthy again after many months of a debilitating shoulder injury that impacted the last part of my year in a big way. But ready to go now!

As you're planning which workshops and retreats you will attend this year, please take a peek at all that will be happening at my space in Colorado and in my travels.
Clark Mansion in Taylor, TX...April 2011

I will be visiting Southern Cal, Northern Cal, Arizona, Texas and Florida! My teaching space in Colorado will be host to several Conferences and a special duo-teaching weekend with me and Lesley Riley in May. Colorado Collage Conference with Jenny Doh and Sarah Fishburn is in January and June, and the special faith based Conference, Imagination Congregation with Rebecca Ersfeld and Paulette Insall will take place in 4 days in March and June.  Plus lots of great 1 and 2 day art and marketing classes in my studio. Wow!

All Tied Up

When I was ten years old I was picked on a lot for some reason. Oh wait...I remember. I was skinny, wore glasses and cried at the drop of a hat. A bully's dream target. On a really cold winter day I was hitting the tether ball with a friend at recess. Actually I should say I was trying to hit the tether ball. Physical coordination and I were not on speaking terms.

A couple of tough guys who were in the fifth grade decided they wanted the tether ball and my girlfriend told them they couldn't have it.....
