Here in my River Garden Studio Autumn has arrived and outside
a storm is brewing and wind is scattering leaves everywhere...
but not in my studio.
Window light is ever present, always warming, always clear.
This week I have been glowing in the excitement that Storytelling with Collage, Techniques for Layering Color and Texture, the book I have been working and dreaming about for the last few years has a cover design and has it's own spot on Amazon Books!!
This book has been on my mind and in my heart for so long.
Now it is real, now I can visualize it and now I am even more anxious for it to come out and share it with the world!
Here is a new glimpse of my studio. I have made some changes. Now my studio is just for collaging.
Not to work on my computer, (I do that on the dining room table now) and I am moving my encaustic station out to the garage.
Drawers have been organized. My collections all have homes...
Here is a close up of one of the photos that you might see in Storytelling with Collage.
I am very thrilled that I got to do all the photography myself!!
Dozens of new collages and never before seen photographs fill the pages.
Here are also some some glimpses of some of the projects I will share in this book...
I will guide you through at least nine brand new projects,
so you can create your own version of them yourself.
Each chapter, the themes, the colors, the words and the images have been
carefully thought out.
You will see how I begin and how I get inspired.
And how I work.
If you pre-order this book now, (or have already), please leave me a comment letting me know by October 24th!
And I will put your name in a drawing for one of my new pieces of art featured in this book.
It will be a surprise collage just for you!
