Layers Of Life

Our experiences, dreams and goals are layered one upon each other to make the rich tapestry of our lives. Join us as we explore these many wonderful layers using personal photos, current and vintage ephemera, bits bobbles, and scraps one on top of the other to create a rich tableau right in our journals. We are going to layer, layer, layer for a rich, complex pages, then we are going to open them up to expose the wonderful bits and secrets. Some things will be covered and hidden, some will be revealed. Mystery will be created. The wonderful part is nothing goes to waste. We will use the remaining parts to create a second spread with a different perspective, richly layered with paint, ink, and doodling. I will show you how to achieve an amazing vintage feel for these pages using a variety of mediums and inks.
