I finally found some time to post my classes samples. I will be teaching these at the CREATE retreat in Irvine in May - June 2012.
My 6 hour class will include several mixed media techniques with a final project of one or two artist books that will include photos that students took.
My 3 hour class will include a quick printmaking technique plus some mixed media techniques with a final project of a bound mini journal.

Below are the mini journals and photos of journals that have been filled with collaged/printed  images.

While taking these pictures I had an urge to photograph a bunch of my journals together which created a "TA-DA" moment for me. Michelle Ward had posted a challenge on her blog that called for a "TA-DA" list. Unfortunately I only have time for one item right now..and these are my journals.

 While at it, I also photographed some of my ROD journals (from an on-line class by MarryAnn Moss)  that I have completed last year. These fabric covers journals are really cozy and feel like stuffed animals in a way. You just want to hug them!
