Gelli Plate Journal Workshop

I’m happy to announce that I will be co-facilitating a new workshop, Gelli Plate Journal, with artist Sandy Laipply.  We will be using different techniques on the Gelli Plates to create an accordion style journal, as pictured below:

You can use any color combination of your choice to make five double-sided pages on several different sized gelli plates.

If you would like to see a quick gelli printing demo, check out this video:

  Once you have created your pages, you will fold and adhere them to create your accordion journal.  You will also decorate the covers and attach a ribbon to tie it all together.  You are now ready to use your journal for art journaling, doodling, writing or whatever you desire.

The class will be held at the Bucyrus United Methodist Church Outreach Center on the corner of Hopley and Walnut Streets in Bucyrus, Ohio, on Saturday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All supplies will be furnished, including lunch!

March Mixed Media Canvas Class

I taught another Mixed Media Canvas class in March and it was at Designs by the Chick N’ Coop in Lexington, Ohio.  It was a blast hanging out with this crazy group for the day.  We had fun gluing papers, smearing paint, stamping ink and doodling with pens and markers on our canvases.

I even found a home for one of my belt bracelets and one of my girls.  Thank you ladies.

One thing that I found very interesting was the fact that I have had a total of two men so far in my Mixed Media Canvas class and they both created canvases with houses on them.  They both also chose scrapbook paper designed by a man (or should I say “The Man”…lol) Tim Holtz.  Coincidence…maybe.

Everyone created great artwork and it was a joy to have them in class.
