Hi, Mom! ... just a note from camp!
I've been having such a blast taking the Collage Camp with K.C. Willis of Lipstick Ranch!
The whole camp is on video - you can watch each of the five or six videos at your leisure - and go back to check out details, or just re-watch for inspiration, whenever the urge grabs you. I really like this idea ... you can arrange and plan the time you spend around your own schedule. And the videos are remarkably professionally produced.
K.C. is a terrific teacher - very thorough, and generous with her experience and knowledge. Each "class" is so well-presented it's almost unnecessary to have the extensive forum available for questions - there really aren't many questions after watching the videos.
However, the forum - and photo area! - is like a campfire; it's a great place to chat with other campers, exchange ideas and collaging stories, and show off the work being presented. And there has been some really beautiful work inspired by the workshop.
I've made eight pieces using techniques I've learned at 'camp' - and have nine more in the works. That's certainly getting a bang for my buck, in my book!
If you're interested in seeing what it's all about, check out Collage Camp! Maybe I'll see you 'round the collage campfire!
