James Sharp Workshop - Day 2

Day 2 and we were focusing on Lynne Perrella and Teesha Moore techniques.

James was having heart failure trying to control the 6 of us - hehehehe!!!

This is one of the techniques they use, random squares and punched shapes and pieces of fibers just randomly placed. Funnily enough, this was Martins favourite page!!

This next technique was my favourite page. The idea was to blend images into the images on the background so you can't see which is which and instead of it being two, it all became one.

Again, we had a bit of a tidy up and moved on to our next technique.

I know it's hard to believe from this double spread, but there are actually 4 different copies of photos on this page. The idea is to cut out extra heads to disguise where they join. I'm really pleased how mine came out. Using pastel crayons we hi-lighted various heads.

James demoing the next part of the process.

Chris hi-lighting her heads.

This is Lin's page.

This is my page with the copper and red wash over it. Tried to do drippage but the page was too wet.

Another regular boarder page, this time from magazine pieces.

Everyone creating their borders from magazine bits.

Then we made people using different body parts and accessories and again, I was dared to write in the leftover space.

We also created an irregular border and had to incorporate an image in one of the corners using it to create the border. Added another image and some more writing.

Then we were given the choice of some Teesha and LP papers to put in our books to hide the covers as James had very kindly made us all a cover to put our books in.

This is the back page. The left hand page was just for us to add random images as we went along.

This is the front cover which is all fabric.

And this is the back cover, again all fabric.

And the show and tell, James, Helen, Em, Lin, Chris and Linda.

And I lifted this one of all of us off James's blog post.

Thanks everyone for a lovely, fun filled weekend.

Well done on all that writing! I think I would have been so far out of my comfort zone I would have been miserable, lol! The company and view would have been nice though ;-)!
