I enjoy taking as many art/craft classes as time and money allow but this summer has been a wild ride. Swimming lessons, birthdays, the never ending RV road trip, starting a new business & blog...well, you know. Looking for a solution I started reading about online workshops. I started with one from JoAnnA Pierotti called Tattered Threads Fabric Collage. As I mentioned in my last post her method of image transfer is really cool, easy to do and the result is great. I also bought a course from KC Willis at her Camp Collage. I've never really dabbled in western art but loved KC's work for years and knew that I would learn a lot. What I love most about online workshops is that after I download them to my laptop then anytime the mood strikes it's ready to go. When I take a class at a studio I often forget little things they taught, having it on my computer gives me a chance to watch certain parts over, and over until I get it, right. I have a wish list of workshops I'd like to attend one day; ArtandSoul, ArtFiberFest, Silver Bella, but for now I'll stick closer to home!

I never would have thought you could burn the edges of fabric with a heat gun!!
It's hard to tell from this picture but the photo transfer really worked well.
