with Traci Bautista
(all photos taken with permission from the artist)
My second class at Art Unraveled was with Traci Bautista, an amazing artist and instructor who has her own line of products as well as being the author of Collage Unleashed. Her class was fun and fast-paced and I left with several layered backgrounds by the end of the day. She shared with us her tips and techniques on creating luscious, bold backgrounds that had a lot of texture and personality. We collaged on to paper bags, pieces of fabric and used mail packages as our canvas. It was a freeing experience and I know that I will take away a lot from the day.
Here are some pictures to show you the process . . .
