Image Transfer Collage Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Wednesday night's craft party was fun! We took pictures and turned them into a photo transfer collage! Courtney Prahl taught us this easy technique using everyday household items.

Picking out pictures to use was the hardest part! Then we learned some basic design techniques about collage and chose our materials. Courtney encouraged us to look at trash and junk mail in a new way and incorporate them into our collage!

Everyone's collages turned out great! I love seeing how people end up turning their pictures and some scrap papers into works of art!

Printmaking: Oil of Wintergreen Mimosa Make & Take

Dorothea Barrick came back to teach Printmaking with Oil of Wintergreen for the second time. This class is always really fun! First we got started by learning about Dorothea and her art background. She showed us samples pieces she made using the wintergreen print
making technique.

We then tried the technique ourselves...

We had some great results!

Here are the finished pieces- ready to be framed or turned into cards or incorporated into collage!
