Artistic conversation about the process of art making.
Join Dyan and Dina for a collage adventure!
We start class by showing you some of our most beloved background techniques. We each make two similar backgrounds, so that we can trade with each other. Watch us squirm as we take on the challenge to create on each other's work. The result is lots of laughs and lots of artistic inspiration!
What you get:
Two background techniques, one Dyan style, one Dina style.
Two collage methods, one Dyan style, one Dina style.
A lively conversation about collage and art-making.
FOUR art journal pages created in front of your eyes in over three hours of narrated video. The content is equivalent to a 3-hour class with Dyan and a 3-hour class with Dina.
PDF supply list.
PDFs of Dyan's and Dina's finished pages.
Digital downloads of the backgrounds Dyan and Dina created so that you can work on them, too.
Permanent access to class materials.
Facebook group in which you can share your work and chat with other students. (Look for Back2Back on Facebook.)

What I do is start with some sort of background. Then I wipe some vaseline onto the page in a few areas. Then I paint over the vaseline carefully. You need to overlap the paint layer from the vaseline to the plain paper. Let the paint dry. When it's dry, wipe off the vaseline (the paint over the vaseline won't be dry, so you can wipe it away). Fun. Love the grungy effect you can get.
What's on the page: Dina Wakley media acrylic and vaseline.
