Plaid Enterprises sent me some of their wonderful products to try and the above "Feed the Birds" mixed media hand painted paper collage was made with some of them. I used Mod Podge paper to attach the papers and I used some of their colors to paint the papers, including Parchment, Champagne, Pure Orange, Coffee Bean, Berry Wine, Licorice and the lovely Peach Fuzz. I also used some found papers, vintage stamps, and maps to complete this mixed media paper collage painting.
Plaid did an online interview with me and it can be found HERE.
A suggestion for "collage fodder". Check out an AAUW book fair sale such as the one today in Arlington. It was the last day and half price and I found some great vintage books and sheet music that will find a new life in one of my collages. Thrift shops and Goodwill stores will have used books that might be suitable for collage work.

Pam Carriker, and
I will be teaching a 3 day art journaling workshop this weekend (not free) at The Upstairs Art Gallery in Arlington.
This will be the "Love Your Life" art journaling workshop I taught at Dena's in the summer and I have one scheduled there next May. In the class we will discuss adding some of your favorite things to your journal, things to add while traveling and touch on altered book journals and a little stamp making. If you can't be with us this weekend art journaling, please sign up for the online free class.
