Mixed Media Layers: online workshop

I am beyond excited to introduce you to my very first online workshop: Mixed Media Layers. After teaching in person for so many years, I have finally taken the plunge and can now bring my creative ideas to you. In your studio. In your home. In your pajamas. No matter where you live, what time you like to create, or how many times you want to watch - Mixed Media Layers is waiting for you.

This workshop consists of 6 video segments and takes you through the creation of one project using my signature, mixed media techniques. I share my secrets for creating dymanic, layered surfaces.

I demonstrate technqiues for creating texture, offer tips on developing dimensional backgrounds, share my methods for adding the smallest of details to bring the largest effects, reveal the way in which I chose and use a focal image, offer strategies to to add the perfect finishing touches and focus on my belief that you are always only one layer away from magic. I share my favorite tools - and how to use them. Along the way I also highlight ways to create without thinking so you control the inner critic and let your inner artist fly free.

In total you will instantly get 115 minutes of instruction along with VERY detailed PDFs listing the supplies used as well as documenting and illustrating every step along the way. My class is part of a group of courses on StencilGirl Studio - run by Mary Beth Shaw. But please know that stencils are just one small part of the supplies/techniques shown. As you watch and create - and anytime after - you can connect with me via email or message with your comments, questions, and thoughts. The cost of this workshop is $49.00 - pretty much the same price as a cappucino in New York City.

But there is more. Everybody who purchases this course within the month of February will be entered into a random drawing to win the original artwork created in the workshop.

Have a quick look at this intro video to get a taste of what is in store. And them head over to StencilGirl Studio, sign up for an account, and start making layers.

12 ARTISTS - 12 BOOKS - 12 MONTHS

Over the years, I have been involved with many, many, many artist collaborations. I always find working with other artists to be inspiring and invigorating. And the collaborative process changes the way in which I create. A new year brings a new collaboration and in 2019 I am embarking on a project with 11 other artists. Each of us is creating a handmade book and then we will all work on a spread in each book over the course of a year. Every participating artist is choosing their own theme and mine is VOYAGE.

I worked on the inside cover and a few pages inside to provide some inspiration and direction for the artists to find.

All the participating artists will be posting pics on social media using the hashtag #artx12. As I receive and work in each book along the way, I will continue to post images as well. Who knows? Maybe you will even be inspired to start your own collaboration.

New Release: StencilClub Mashup

I am genuinely excited to introduce you to my newest stencil release from StencilGirl Products. Why so excited? Because these 3 stencils are mashups that Mary Beth Shaw and I created together. They are exclusive to StencilGirl StencilClub but more on that later.

Mary Beth and I decided to create this mashup in such a fun way. We each chose our favorite elements from stencils that the other artist created. Those elements were then digitally altered and updated so that they are distinct from the original design. Once they were cut, the real fun began. Here are some journal pages that I made using all 3 stencils.

There are 3 stencils in this release: one large at 9"x12", one small at 6"x6" and a mini at 4"x4". These stencils are for the January release in StencilClub.

As a member of the club, you receive 3 exclusive, artist-designed stencils each month. Along with that comes a video from the designing artist demonstrating a technique using the stencils, a PDF of instructions, membership in a private Facebook group, access to all past, exclusive StencilClub stencils, and a 20%-off, one-time-use coupon for all of the stencils on StencilGirl. The cost of membership is $25 monthly and you can see details and/or sign up here.
