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!
