Thought I would give everyone a look at some constructions of studies that will spill over to my Art Unraveled workshops that take place in August right here in Arizona, Phoenix to be exact.
“Dimensional Collage With Digital Prints” is my new workshop/article written for Workshop on the Web. This article will appear in the March 2011 issue of this interesting internet publication.
My artwork including journals and art books incorporate original digital images with many textures and other mixed medium elements. Digital media can be used in many uncommon ways with alternative ways. This concept drives my work. For this workshop/article my focus is on simple ways to include digital prints in mixed media art. I chose a base of watercolor paper that can be printed on any digital printer with no precoat. This makes the process fun and simple. The dimensional parts come from other added elements seen in the article.

Another page is ready for my Forest Book and it is composed of paper clay, encaustic, waxed linen, digitally printed and melted lutradur, dyed burlap, threads and pieces of a multitude of digital prints on alternative surfaces. This page measures approximately 4 feet x 2 feet. The back side will be posted here soon. I have included a full shot and detail. If you would like to see some other pictures of the base and the start of adding encaustic pieces go to my texture blog.
