Creative Team Thank You

The idea of having my own creative team had been floating around in my head for many years but the time never seemed right...until it did. In October of last year, my first team was formed. The open call described the goals of the team to revolve around creativity, community, mutual support, education, diversity, promotion, innovation, and - of course - art. Just having ended on June 30, I am beyond pleased to say that I think each and every one of those goals was met. And exceeded.

Collage Camp: Registration Open

Registration is now open for Collage Camp - my newest FB Live workshop.

Camp is in session on Tuesday July 13 from 1-4pm EST

Cost of class is $40

Find supply list and register here.

Pack your paper & glue and join me for an afternoon at camp. We start by discussing general collage techniques and approaches This is followed by a review of a series of basic principles underlying the collage process. We will be making a quick “glue and go” collage that illustrates each of the concepts we discuss. These principles are particularly helpful to use when you find yourself creatively stuck. We will then move on to creating a handbound book with pockets which will contain your collage illustrations and notes. 

This will become your handbook of collage and a reference guide that you can refer to once camp is over. After the class is completed, you can choose to continue to decorate your book mixed media style – or leave as is. The concepts covered in this course can be applied to your ongoing work in collage as well as in areas such as painting, art journaling and mixed media.

 

New Release: PaperArtsy Paint & Stamps

Always excited when the time comes to release new products. The timeline from the original idea to the actual release is always long. It isn't always easy to be patient until I can actually share the creations with you. But it is such a sweet moment when I finally can. Today that moment has once again arrived. Three new sets of stamps and four new paint colors are now officially available to add to your collection.

 

I present to you: Fuzzy Cactus, Desert Bush, Tundra and Agave.

 

These four opaque colors are soft, muted desert tones that work well together and maybe even better when used with rust, red, deep navy, organge, and yellow hues. They are all Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics, which means they dry fast, can be written or marked over with any and every pen/mark maker, and will not vause yiou journal or book pages to stick together once air dried. They can be purchased in my shop as a set of four or individually. My collection of colors now totals 28 and all can be found in my online shop. If you want a better view, scroll down to see the artwork in this post, which was made with all four colors plus my very popular basic Heavy Cream

 

Sets ESA22, ESA23 and ESA24

 

My three new sets of cushioned cling red rubber stamps all reflect my love of abstract mark making, text, words & phrases, and my distressed, grungy & imperfect style. You can get these in my online shop individually or as a full set of threeMy full collection of 24 sets plus my 24 individual mini stamps can all work together to enhance your mixed media backgrounds, borders and focal points. Have a look more closely at my new sets below and the art I made using all my new stamps and paint together. Please note that most of the artwork is also available for purchase and you can follow the links if interested.

Collaging and Glazing

This past week I focused on a FB Live demo on multiple approaches to glazing over collage. If you missed it Live, you can watch the recording here (actual demo begins at about the 25:00 mark). I started three pieces during the demonstration and was so inspired by the process that i immediately completed all of them. They have since found their way onto the shelves of my online shop.
