Pam Carriker's workshop in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine was one of my first introductions into mixed media collage portraits or girlie collages as I like to call them. I read the instructions but still had no idea what to do as the language was so foreign to me - what was a substrate and what was a background stamp? - I remember asking myself. I decided I wanted to create my own girlie collage so I worked it out on my own and found out I loved collage and scrapbooking paper but needed a little practice on painting faces.
Here is my first girly collage titled: Lady Autumn Leaves - April 2010
After a few attempts a deviant art friend said I should have a look at Kelly Rae Robert's portfolio - so I did and I rejoiced in the fact that I wasn't so weird after all and so did my husband - as my girls had long necks and tilted heads. More of the journey of my girly collages can be seen on my deviantart collage gallery.
On Monday night I decided to enrol into Kelly's Flying Lessons e-course about tips and tricks to make your creative business soar and am really excited by what I've been learning and can't wait to continue on my journey.
