Being published in CPS means a GIVEAWAY! (+ workshops schedule)






 I am happy to share that my article "Love (of) Type" has been published in the March/April issue of the Cloth, Paper, Scissor magazine. I am writing about one of my favorite techniques: incorporating fonts and letters in my mixed media art.


To celebrate this event I am announcing a GIVEAWAY of 3 collage packets! If you would like to participate just leave a comment by Friday 3.13.15. The 3 winners will be posted here on Saturday.
If you see your name please contact me by email (dorit_elisha (at) yahoo (dot) com with your mailing address.

Also, I will be teaching 3 workshops in the next 3 months:
April 23: A collage sampler book. info here: http://paadultschool.org/classes/collage-sampler-book/
May 31: Gelli plate printmaking and June 21: Beyond Gelli printmaking.

A printmaking sampler

In the last few weeks I have been working on this series of booklets (each has 6 pages and is 36" long). They include several printmaking techniques plus other mixed media techniques:
Gelli plate printing, collagraph printing, screen printing with Thermafax screens, stenciling, stamping, collage and pen work.
I love using all of these techniques together. I think they compliment each other and look great together.

Lovely gelli plate workshop


Many thanks to all of the talented ladies who came to play and print last Saturday.
The beautiful books and prints in these pictures are just a small sample of the wonderful art I saw at the end of the day.

20 years in the (print)making!

I am very honored and delighted to share that my printmaking art and ebook are the subject of the Cloth Paper Scissors daily newsletter:
http://www.clothpaperscissors.com/blogs/clothpaperscissorstoday/archive/2015/01/05/printmaking-techniques-pattern-play.aspx

In truth it has been more than 20 years, but who is counting..

I am taking this opportunity to add a few more images of my printmaking with and without mixed media from the last five years or so:

'Create' and Seattle

Last week was a 'two in one' fun:
First - teaching and taking workshops at the wonderful art retreat "Create".
And second - visiting one of my favorite cities in the US: Seattle.

Arriving to Seattle by air is amazing: Looking at all the water and green islands is breathtaking.
Seattle is also famous for its street art, which you bump into every corner of the street, and around many public buildings. I only had a few free hours and this selection of photos is just the tip of the iceberg..

















                                 snowy mountains are not too far..







                         beautiful totem polls carved by the Northwest Native Americans

                                                        inside a train station

                                                 these instruments are a few stories high!

..and the other fun part - creating art with hundreds of women artists who all came just for that purpose from all over the US!
Here are most of the participants in the classes I taught and their wonderful art:
Thank you  Carolina, Iris, A.J.,Kelly, Ginger, Cynthia, Barsha, Dani, Susan, Lynn, Janet, Cheryl,
Janet, Alanna, Josephine, Kaye, Lorayne, Kate, Kerry, and Mona.(I hope I didn't miss one of you!).
It was a pleasure working with you.
