I’ve fallen in love with Sakura Gel Pens. While working on ideas for a decorative paper and collage class (Sign up here) I got hooked on working with the pens combined with Koh-i-nor woodless color pencils and have made a lot of paper in preparation for cutting the pages up for collage. These photos show some of the results.
The class will be three hours on Friday mornings for six weeks beginning January 30th 2015 and is to be held in McLean, VA. Even if you are experienced in doing this type of work, the class will provide time to work with a community of like minded persons.
Create your own unique patterned papers for collage with paint, drawing, stamps and stencils. Learn layering techniques to create beautiful, unique, hand designed paper. By sewing and gluing, we will create layered effects and interesting juxtapositions. You will use the papers you have designed to create small collages and Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). Suggested materials to collect for use in class: old handwritten letters, interesting weathered old book pages, paper bags, odd bits of patterned paper you may have or find, bits of fabric, yarn, thread, old calendar pages.
