Kathy Sandler will be teaching a new class at The Purple Pear, a mixed media journal class. I intend to take this one too! Kathy loves collage and will show us how to incorporate papers of all kinds to create a book cover that reflects who we are and what is important to us. I love patterns of all kinds, and she will encourage us to mix an array of images on a page. This is the front of her journal.
This wonderful front inside cover is actually sealed with melted wax, an encaustic method of sealing and protecting. She also uses wonderful tapes and some of her images are simply things she has saved from magazine cover. I have saved a lot of my Anthropology catalogs for projects that would be perfect for this.
This is the back cover and I love the pieces that she has chosen, the monochromatic display of pattern. If you are interested in this class, send me an email to email@example.com to get times and cost. It will be a fun class and Kathy is an exceptional teacher.
