new mixed media collage classes


I just finished another mixed media collage to use as a sample for my mixed media classes and workshops at Scrapbook Queens. This one is for my intermediate mixed media workshop and I've used a grid pattern to build the collage. This collage uses up some of my favourite paper scraps from the My Minds Eye's Lost and Found collection. I can't wait to teach this class because I had a wonderful time creating this piece ...
so many of the found elements on it have been sitting in my studio for a while waiting to be added to a special collage ... like the words "You're so lucky," said the rabbit ... I can't remember what children's book I cut that out of but it has been in my studio for over a year. Beeswax is the secret ingredient for the finished look of this piece and I know that we are going to have a blast experimenting with this medium in my workshops. I guess I'll have to update the pictures on my class website and display this collage at Scrapbook Queens later today.
If you are interested in taking any of my mixed media workshops here are some of my class dates:  Friday February 4th, 2011 - introduction to mixed media collage 2 (close up picture above) and Sunday March 6th, 2011 - intermediate mixed media collage.
