Let me tell you about my New Workshop! Digital Collage!

One of the ideas inspirations presented in my book, see side bar at top,  is printing photographs on collage substrates!

New Workshop! Digital Collage!

In this one day workshop, Digital Collage! Create a 12x12 fabric and paper collage to print on! We print the collage in the workshop using our own photographs! Based on Wen's book- ‘Digital Fiber Art and Mixed Media Masterpieces’.
Printer must be provided by students. Share!
                        Participants can create a simple altered photograph of their very own to print! Wen includes a demonstration on her new innovative sneaky layering technique so you can easily create unique layered photos!
            You can use Photoshop or an app called Photoshop Mix or any similar blending app. The app should be able to blend or layer 2 or more photos. This should be downloaded before class onto your phone or ipad.
            inkAid will be introduced and used. The collage you create with your own fabrics will be digitally prepared with grounds for a very clear and lasting fabric print. 
            Wen will show you her innovative batting technique- fusing felt to the back which serves as both backing and batting! 
            The digital collage quilt will feature a new edge treatment that uses paint! Her painted edges yield a wonderful new textural accent to the finished piece. You’ll learn how to apply a protective coating, medium enhancements or washes to the top of the quilt that will enhance the colors and protect it too. the students will have the opportunity to try specialty medium enhancements for a unique mixed media mini quilt! And a secret collage after treatment!
            A great way to extend this workshop would be to add a 1 day Fab Fabric Painting workshop first and use some of those newly painted fabrics in the collage creation!
Hope you’ll join us!

Let me Tell You About My Workshops- Textured Fiber Photograph


Printing a photograph on a textured background lends an unusual dimension to your finished images. 
Lightweight molding paste is a thick medium that you spread on a base and add texture to create a painterly aspect to your fiber photographs.  

You may simulate brush strokes or texture it with stamps, sticks, just about anything. Any photograph will work with this amazing technique!
Think about how oil paintings look with their textured stokes.
You may want allot of texture for a photograph of an old wall or landscape or you may want just a touch of texture to add interest to the background of a portrait. 
This medium will need a coat of  Digital Grounds for the best result. I use inkAid.


It is thin enough to be sewn and can be ironed gently using a wool setting. We'll learn how to protect the finish photograph too! 
  Enjoy this creative tool in your digital palette!
