When I arrived many months ago for filming, the crew was pretty sure I was moving in for 6 months. I had a van load of supplies to create these videos and still had that feeling I had forgotten something. Good news- didn’t forget a thing! And they were a wonderful group to work with- each and every one of them! Plus they trusted me with spray ink in a room with white walls. They are brave brave souls!
During that trip, I filmed 4 videos/DVDs. Here are previews of each one and little bit about them.
In the collaging DVD or video download, I am sharing what my process is for creating collages. And you will see how I work with some incredibly ugly layers I’ve created and then make them more colorful. I even enlist the help of Amy, my wonderful producer who bravely agrees to work blindfolded in this one…
Stencils are a tool to me just like a paint brush is a tool. How you use that tool can give you different results. In the preview you can see how I finger paint with a stencil. Of course, with all this wet paint, there is the risk of mud. In the full video, I share how I avoid my colors all going to that color that scares me the most…mud!

I love handmade journals but I just have a problem with patience. My way around that is using a hardback book then adding a wire binding to create junk journals using all sorts of stuff.
I have bought supplies over the years and not used them all up. But I love them all. So I look for different ways I can use those same supplies. This video is full of the ways I combine and mix my materials to get a new look!
