Yesterday I spent the morning at The 1800 House. It's a restored home from the 1800's here on island where they give folk art classes. The instructors come from all over as well as being island residents. It's a wonderful environment with great people. Yesterday's workshop instructor was Alison Shriver http://www.alisonshriver.com/ who teaches silouhettes (a bit of a very interesting twist to the age old craft), using authentic paper emphera (old ledger paper, maps, letters, etc) which is what caught this paperholics attention!! Posting a temporary pix of the piece I finished - that is until DH gets back with the camera...the scanner is not doing to well with this two dimensional piece. Check out Alison's site and her work. I'll be playing with this technique for sure. It's not such a far cry from my old life with stencils and it's sparked all kinds of interesting ideas to follow through on....more soon!!
