Basic Collage Camp

Today I took a day off work and headed up to the Urban Barn in Escondido to attend KC Willis' Basic Collage Camp. This was the first time to Urban Barn and it is delightful -- with this huge space out back for parties and workshops. Below is just one of the tables, loaded with the fabric and special papers that KC brought for us to play with.


(And that's a picture of my gran on t-shirt transfer paper that KC made for me. That's also one of her fabric collages off to the right...)

It took me a while to spot these -- but they were way cool in the big space!


Our work table which was this massively long table had little jam jars of roses. Aren't they pretty?


Here's KC giving her intro. Yeah, bad timing on my part, sorry KC.


Here's my collage in process.... See that golden bottle off to the upper left? It's Aleene's Tacky Glue. It is the most amazing stuff. Glues anything to anything. Incredible!


Let me tell you, sewing machines and I do not get along, so all the machine sewing was an adventure, let me tell you! The decorative stitches sure were pretty though. I will show you the finished piece tomorrow -- want to do some close up pictures and I think there'll be sundry blog posts afore long too.

    I think the item you are talking about is a old heater that I had to display my jewelry and it is sold.
    Thanks so much
