Join Jane Davies as she shares her favorite texture making techniques and materials.
You'll learn over a dozen ways to make beautiful paper that will be uniquely your own. She shows you how a simple knowledge of design and color can help you expand your collection of collage papers with design enhancing papers. She focuses on color schemes, value contrast, color contrasts, scale and mood.
In this workshop you see Jane's high energy approach to glazing, textures, spritzing & blotting, painting, spattering, non-traditional uses of the brayer, mono-printing, uses of the gel plate, resists, alcohol, sumi-e ink, altered paper, staining and layering.
Jane then tackles composition in collage. She demonstrates using a grid study. She then moves on to a landscape style composition. You hear her describe the rationale of her choices. Seeing her work is fun, enlightening and freeing!
