A variety of painting techniques will be explored as we create a stash of luscious papers that are enhanced with delightful textures and patterns. Deli food wrap, vintage ledger pages, old maps, phone book sheets, and a wide selection of additional paper ephemera will be altered with gelatin plate printing, stamping and stenciling.
After the paint dries, we will create collages onto fabric substrates. These magical images come to life with the addition of free-motion machine sewing.
Your work can be finished into a journal cover or hung as wall art.
