On a rainy, cold day there is nothing better than taking a workshop inside! This is the second Spring class offered by OLLI and taught by Sandy Vrem and a group of us gathered around the heaters in her garage and produced some wonderful surface design. I created the four images above (Upper Left and CW) by running an inked roller over a wooden cutout and then rolling out the ink on paper; inking various household objects and pressing them to black paper; cutting or punching designs from foam and creating my own stamps. I got so involved in making the stamps that I didn’t make it to the other activities but I have photos!
The fold on a manila folder is perfect for symmetrical patterns and this one was used as a mask on the collage you can see above.
Glue Gun masks or stamps. How fascinating. I love the quirky designs.
These books should keep us busy for awhile. Have fun!
