In this technique based workshop series, you create collage pages centered around a new technique every month that can be added to an "art journal" as a way to keep your collages organized.
This month features mica and how to use it in your art journals. Mica are smooth, flat pieces of transparent organic rock formed in many layers. Mica tiles easily delaminate and can be re-adhered with adhesives or various hardware components. Every mica tile is distinctly different from one another and packages contain several different sizes and colorations. Tear, die-cut, or trim with scissors, heat resistant Mica tiles can be embossed, stamped, painted, collaged, used as photo transfer canvas, and adhered to virtually any surface.
Basic supply list for this series: Collage images, adhesive, scissors, favorite embellishments, an assortment of favorite inks from your collection.
March's project is Sewing Over Cords, another variation of an exposed spine stitch. This stitch allows for a unique embellishment opportunity using the cords.
Basic supply list for this series: heavy duty awl, bone folder, scossors, pencil, ruler, bookbinding or embroidery needles and PATIENCE!
