Okay so call me impatient...I had planned to create a blog post for each of the new videos/DVD's but frankly I am so excited I cannot wait so with0ut further ado here is a peek of the new releases all available on the Interweave site or Artists Network TV.
Yes I am completely enthralled with brown paper and cereal bags and when you put them together what do you create - a plethora of beauty. My Upcycled Art Journal video is bursting with info and techniques (quite literally as I worked right through the 60 minute mark and turned it into 83 minutes of creating).
Because I am so completely addicted to the idea of taking materials that seem harsh and transforming them into treasures of beauty, I could not resist the idea of putting together a shadowbox created with paper clay and plaster. As a bonus Interweave created a special kit that includes a wee bird (like the one seen on the DVD cover) in each of the kits. I think we all know how much I love little birdies - expecially as I created over 100 of them just for this.
I embrace every opporunity I have to create with paper, paint and molding paste. Tear, Glue, Paint and Draw allowed me to play with my stencils, mark making tools, paper, pencils, ephemera and of course paint.
And last but not least a little peek of Sewn Collage Classroom - my ode to all things I love!!!! Paper, Fabric, Paint and Stitching.
I hope you enjoy the videos as much I as enjoyed creating them to share with all of you!
