Time flies when you're having fun and so it's been awhile since I last blogged. Anne's Bagby's Signal Mountain weekend was a really enjoyable experience this year. The papers pictured above were created on 12"X12" deli paper. We used Anne's stamps to create our complicated papers.
The landscape was a quick exercise and there wasn't much time to think. We had to lay down strips and add an element. It could have used something else but I was lagging behind and threw this together pretty quickly.
Tiny composition books were used as a collage base for our self portaits. I went with a symbolic self-portrait but some of the ladies did really wonderful jobs of collaging their images.
Thanks (I think) to my new friend Lynne who snapped this photo as I worked. I really had those arms going! The entire group of ladies at this retreat felt like 'new friends'.
We brought two sets of acrylic paint colors and these are the colors I used on the last day. The object was to lay down a cross shape and to use some type of chop on the page. These sheets were also created using deli paper.
Anne's workshop was a real treat. Besides the papers we made, we also transferred images onto carving block and worked on handcarved stamps. Sorry, I have nothing to show! I'm still working on mine and will be for some time. The design I picked was very detailed and it may be spring before I get back to it!
