Ranger Workshop with Dina


March 1-3, 2024

Join me for a weekend workshop at Ranger Headquarters!

We are going to create an altered book and fill it with lots of Dina Wakley Media goodness! Paint, collage sparks, transparencies, collage papers, typed ledgers…the works.

First, we will prepare the book and pre-stamp lots of imagery. Next, we will have a play day with lots of painting techniques. I will show you the ways that I like to combine neon paints and glosses to create interesting effects, and we will make artsy elements to go in our books. Finally, we will create finished pages in our books, keeping in mind composition principles and story telling.

Workshop Location:
