Join me on Monday, June 27th at my new studio in Greylock Works, in 508 State Road, North Adams, MA to celebrate the publication of my book Collage Your Life. There will be music! DJ’s Sophistipop and Black Angus will be spinning 80’s and Afrobeat, plus other dance tunes.
The book will be available for purchase! And I’ll be launching my **new** studio space.
Here’s a bit about the book thanks to the Storey Publishing website:
In Collage Your Life, artist and teacher Melanie Mowinski teaches a variety of core techniques including lettering, stamping, stencilling, transfers, and adhesive methods, and provides dozens of prompts to jumpstart the creative process and encourage crafters to explore the versatility of collage, such as make a self-portrait; disrupt your routine instincts; incorporate text; assemble mementos from a trip; process anger or anxiety; collage with others; or try creating block-out poetry with pages from a magazine.
Inspiring examples of the author’s work along with that of other collage artists are featured throughout. Crafters, journaling fans, scrapbookers, and artists alike will find guidance and support for developing their own distinctive collage style, whether the goal is to create a visual record of daily experiences and special occasions or to expand a creative journaling practice.
