Blatantly advertising my courses!

I Hope none of you will be offended by my blatant using of my blog to advertise a couple of the courses I want to run this year.
Although they are all collage courses they are all quite different. Above is a collage on canvas made up of lots of different images all with the same theme, here it is dogs but you could choose anything that takes your fancy. You will paint the canvas to give an interesting background texture then apply images and then embellish with buttons, jewels, glitter etc etc then paint again to give more texture and distress/aging effects. A fun way to bring images together.
This lovely folding padded collage uses layering of textiles some transfer work and copying images onto cotton and organza, each panel tells a little story. Some machine and hand stitching.
This was truly a joy to create, lots of hand stitching, buttons, ribbon, photos, paper, lace well you can bung on anything that takes your fancy!

All the courses will come with a basic 'kit' for you to build on and I have plenty of images you can copy but I would encourage you to look around for your own 'themes'. The sky is the limit really.

If there is anyone out there that may be interested please leave a comment as I would love some feed back, am I on the right track?
