Magazine Collage mini-class with When Frogs Sing!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to let you know that Rhomany at Rhomany's Realm has invited me to do a mini-class as part of her When Frogs Sing 2016 course.  This is a stand-alone class meaning that you do not have to sign up for the whole When Frogs Sing course (you totally can if you want to of course!).  All that you need to do is do the free registration at Rhomany's Realm to be part of the forum and then you will be able to register for my mini-class.

Once you have registered at her forum (the password is located in the text of this message then click on the yellow paint splat that says "Become a Member" and paid for my workshop, please contact me with your forum User Name and email and that way I can make sure that you are given access to my workshop.  My email is:

During the month of July, Rhomany has invited three guest tutors, including myself, to host mini classes as an add-on to her When Frogs Sing course. Anna Brim aka Mrs. Brimbles and Clare Horner aka GotPaintInMyHair will also be offering special workshops during the month.

I almost hate calling this a mini-class because it's not going to be mini like that at all!  I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to share my love of collage in a classroom format.  This is the first time that I have ever gone through my entire collage process from beginning to end and I have so much to share with you.  Each video has been recorded in real-time as I go through each subject step-by-step.  So far I will be having 6 videos, which includes an introduction video, and I might surprise you with a bonus process video as well!  My workshop will be live and run July 11th-15th of 2016. You are also able to sign up any time after that week until November 30, 2016.  You will have "forever" online access to the videos with the option to download them if you choose.  The classroom is in a forum so you will be able to ask me questions, get to know other students and share photos of your creations under each days topic.

The subjects discussed in this course are:

***Supplies - my favorite and tried-and-true supplies that I use to create my collage pages starting with the basics up to some more speciality supplies that help add color and interest to your pages.

***Finding images/words/phrases that work for you.  What my favorite magazines are and why, plus ideas on finding almost-free/free sources to use in your journals.

***Creating a collage journal page.  I will take you from the very start of choosing an image to finish as I create a page in my collage journal.

***Creating artist trading cards and postcards.  Working on a much smaller scale to create fun cards to trade and mail.

***Collage on the Go.  How to put together a travel collage bag so that you can do collage anywhere, even if it's just in a different room of your house!

I would be so thrilled if you decided to join me in July as I share with you my tips and tricks to putting together wonderful collage pages!

Thanks so much and I hope to see you there!
Take care,
