Super Glam Girl Collage 2010

A few weeks ago I made a mixed media collage for a friend of mine who turned 40!!!  She loved it so much she asked me to do one for her daughters birthday this month.  What a great gift idea for a girl...after all don't all girls just wanna have fun?

Self Portrait Mixed Media Collage 2010

I've never done a self portrait of myself before but because I'm going to be teaching a workshop on self portrait mixed media collage, I felt it was important to have something inspiring to share with my students.

In doing this it gave me the opportunity to see beyond my outer layers, digging deep into the stuff I love about myself and the stuff I'm not so crazy about. It forced me look deep inside of who I am helping me seperate my dreams from the dreams of others.

I find as I get older I become more forgiving and compassionate with myself.  In saying that I am now able to see beyond my flaws and my outside appearance and explore my humanity at a deeper level.

Life has a way seasoning us like a wonderfully full bodied fine wine, we get better with age.

My Mixed Media Workshop

Yesterday I put on my first mixed media workshop.  So many things were going through my head the night before...will I remember all the supplies, will my students like what they've made, will we complete everything in the three hour time frame?  Well I'm relieved to say that it went very well.  My students loved the experience and collaging so much, they have asked to come to my next workshop. We finished in three hours (surprisingly, as we took up so much of the time talking and laughing) and I remembered everything but one tube of black paint, which we made do without!

This was a great experience for myself as well.  I enjoyed the girl time and listening to the stories shared around the table. I will definitely be teaching another class in the very near future!  More details coming soon...

Go Green With My Vinyl Record Cuff Bracelets

The cuff bracelet has been sprinkled throughout the pages of fasion magazines and is 2010's biggest accessory. All of my nifty new cuff bracelets are made from upcycled vinyl records, hand painted and sealed.  I've even added some charms and beads to a few.   You can find these and more at both Keric Funk and Naked North Gallery and Gifts.
