Today my studio hosted an 'altered spaces' collage workshop.
Using a strong citrus cleaner (TKO Super Concentrated Cleaner---'CitraSolve' in the States) and National Geographic magazines, we created amazing papers and collaged them into
unique pieces of art!
Basically I felt like I was paying it forward in a way, sharing what I had learned in a workshop with John Schevers- a most amazing mixed media and encaustic artist from Quadra Island.
It is a fun, freeing, 'everyone can do it', 'every piece is brilliant' kind of process...
Here are a few pics--- but most of the collages are not actually finished at this point- they need to be trimmed, varnished or waxed.
