Collages for the Soul
A HUGE thank you to this month's guest artist; Alyshia Bensch from Studio Marlo, for sharing with our group of happy crafters some of her tips and tricks for creating bespoke mixed media collages.
Alyshia shared with us beautiful examples of her own work, some inspiring books and resources on collaging, heaps of materials and a little know-how, and guided everyone through the process when they needed advice.
We delved deep into mountains of craft supplies; papers, card, foil, paint swatches, paper punches, magazines, books, paint pens, markers, acrylic and watercolour paints, transfers, glues and sealant... and the artworks produced were amazing!
Fuelled by sweet treats and unlimited tea and coffee, we nestled into the wonderful train station-turned-art space; Off The Rails in Dunkeld, sang along to "Totally Stress Free" (on Spotify: would recommend) and had a glorious afternoon.
Check out some pics from the day- thanks to all of the lovely ladies who booked in, you were a great bunch!
There's something about just letting yourself create that is good for the soul. Whether it was the painting, the company, the satisfaction of the finished piece or just carving out time in the day to do something totally for yourself, it was magical 😊
We're looking forward to a very special edition of My Crafternoons monthly workshops this August...
...believe it or not...
It's been a whopping 5 YEARS since our first ever creative class, and it's high time we celebrated!
More details to be revealed this month, make sure you're on the mailing list to hear about it first!
