Life is all about Perspective

Note: You will be sent a link to join the workshop via Zoom the day before the workshop.
We invite you to log on fifteen minutes early if you need a short tutorial on using Zoom.

Join Melissa Grace Young in a playful approach to exploring perspective and using collage elements to create an interesting composition in your journal. Consideration of patterns and colors will help unify your page.

Find a favorite photo to cast this doppelgänger effect, and print out two images, about 5” x 1 ½”, black and white.

You will use watercolor or spray stains to prep our background and create patterns on your page. Spray stains are highly encouraged supplies, as they allow a spontaneous and intense burst of color and work especially well with stencils.

Find what you have on hand:
Photo, printed on regular printer paper-twice, approximately 5” & 1 ½”
(prefer B&W)
A few printed or found images, from magazines, wrapping paper, etc.
Watercolors or Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains
Small sharp scissors
Matte medium (Golden or Liquitex), or other glue
Patterned stencil or we will cut our own.
