Transfer, Trace, Transform – Art Journaling

Get ready to transform your art journal!

Join me for a fun day of exploring different ways to trace and transfer images into your art journal pages. The imperfect look of transferred photos can serve either as a building block of your layering process or as a stand alone focal point of a page. Tracing techniques provide just as many creative choices, and we’ll learn loose tracing techniques based on different image sources to give you a variety of options for your art journaling. Not only are there many ways to actually transfer or trace images, there are also many ways to transform those images in your art journal into something personal and unique.

All of my stamps, stencils, and other n*Studio products will be available for purchase at the workshop, as well as a selection of other mixed media art goodies.
