My brand new video workshop, Contemporary Fabric Collage: Design, Stitch and Finish, is now available for download! I am so thrilled with this project.
It's just like taking a workshop with me. As I prepared for the shoot, I made long lists about all the tips, suggestions, ideas and directions I wanted to include. Plus, there are lots of visual aids and examples throughout the dvd. I think you're going to love it!
The video workshop includes chapters on fabric selection, composition, using sheer fabrics, stitching by machine and by hand, and unique finishing options.
Artwork from the Video
I created three fabric collages specifically for filming the video workshop. They each include the signature elements and techniques that are discussed in the workshop.
Verdant Vista, 14x11"
Ikat Gathered, 12.5 x 11"
Plentiful, 22 x 15"
To celebrate the release, check out this fun give-away! I've created three "collage kits" inspired by each of the three collages for the video. Each kit includes several pieces of fabric, including some of the exact same fabrics I used in these collages, plus some fabrics with my original stamping and surface designs. There are sheer fabrics, cottons, unexpected and unusual items and vintage hankies. Plus, a couple of skeins of coordinating embroidery floss, one of my favorite needles and a spouncer sponge. (Almost everything you need to create your own collage.)
