Heart Collage Zoom Workshop Aftermath

 We had a great group last Friday for the Valentine Card Workshop. I'll do it again next February. Here are just a few of the pieces made by participants.

All of these are small, greeting card size. It's a great format for exploring contrasts in color, value, and pattern. How do you make an image lively without making it 'too busy'? Where is the line between visual excitement and visual confusion? How simple can you make an image and still maintain a sense of excitement or mystery? 

Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day!


  1. Thanks so much for this workshop! I'm glad to know that you're offering it again next year, as I have a few friends who would love to take it. A suggestion: If you could offer it in late January or very early February, it would give students more time to experiment and make cards, with time still to put them in the mail to recipients. It was too late for me this year to send as Valentine cards, but I'm now experimenting with different shapes, making "all-purpose" cards.


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
