Free Collage Demo

Here is the first step in my creation of "Quintana Roo" collage, which appears in New Creative Collage Techniques on page 144. The step-by-step process (only available online) is in pdf format. Open it in Adobe Reader (download free at adobe.com) and print for easy reference. This mixed-media collage contains several techniques in the book, including an ink- and paint-textured background with overlays of brayer and crystalline papers.

Hithergreen Center has a new look.

Friends visit in the recently updated reception area. Hithergreen members Fran Doster and Dwight Glover donated funds to purchase the new coffee bar; Washington Township installed the water line and electrical connections. The Dayton Foundation, the Leland Foundation, Ruetschle Architecture and Design, and Aydelotte Equipment provided grants and services to make this project possible, along with updated chairs and tables throughout the center. An original abstract collage by the late Virginia Lee Williams of Centerville, Ohio, adds to the sleek and modern look of the area. Hithergreen is a friendly, busy place with recreational and fitness activities, in addition to art classes and more. Members can save $10 off the 2012 membership fee by joining next week before the center closes for the holidays. Stop by Monday, Dec. 19 through Thursday, Dec. 22 to see what Hithergreen is all about or check out Hithergreen's Web Site.
