In this unique workshop, you will create a meaningful deck of soul journey cards. You will assemble a deck of cards with collage imagery, rubber
stamps and mixed media. Each set will be unique to the creator (no two sets will ever be alike). You will work with special exercises to
create a unique set of personal imagery cards. You will learn new mixed media techniques, tips and tricks. You will also learn new collage
ideas including composition and design tips. You will walk out with your own deck of cards and a special carrying case (also made by you!)
You will love this class and the cards that you create!!
Supply List: Roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, scissors, cork backed metal ruler, 3 1" bristle brushes (to paint and glue with), container
to hold water in, Favorite Glue Stick (if desired), selection of collage ephemera (including background papers and focal images),
permanent black inkpad (like Versafine). Please note the instructor will have an array of mixed media supplies including acrylic paint,
rubber stamp and collage ephemera, but to make this class more meaningful, please bring a small selection of collage ephemera.

In this workshop you will construct a 6 x 9” landscape size book (though you could also hold the book “steno notebook style”). I love to create journal forms that push me and give my creativity a boot! This book form sure did. I fell in love with it! It pushed me in a new direction. Not only will you create this new book in class, but you will also work hands on it learning new mixed media and collage techniques. You will learn a variety of techniques to get color (paint AND paper) and images onto the page. You will walk out with several pages completed and your head full of new ideas.

In this workshop, we will be creating a 9x9” square journal with unusual pockets on the inside covers. This journal is one of my favorites. After constructing the book, we will also explore (hands on) a variety of new techniques in painting and collage. I love this book structure and so will you!
Supply List: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, container to hold water, 3 1" brushes to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes), permanent black inkpad

This class was a HUGE success at Artfest 2001 and across the U.S. It's one of my favorite book forms. I'm bringing it back and revising it-updating it! A very unique book that lends itself to a variety of different styles. Please bring favorite scraps of ephemera (old letters, journal pages, collaged tags, etc…) You will construct a three panel book from scratch that can be used as a journal, story album, photo album, memoribilia book and more! The stitch that holds the book together is easy and adds interest to the structure of the book. Learn unusual ways of incorporating favorite imagery and collage ephemera into the design of the book. Walk away with your own personal journal with your head spinning with ideas!
