Julie Nutting's Class

I recently took a class with Julie Nutting, artist and author of Collage Couture.  She taught us how to make these wonderful  Valentine paper dolls.  Three different dolls all with the same body.  I love them.  Pick up her book.  This is something I could make daily and feel like I really created something cute.
The other day my friend Cynthia came over and we created canvases together.  These are unusual colors for me to use.  I usually love the cool tones…purples, pinks, blues, and teals.  The texture on this canvas was created with encaustic wax, which was fun to play with.
Here is Cynthia’s beautiful encaustic piece.  It has a lovely old world look to it. 
It was a fun day and I hope we do it again soon.
My next paper doll is going to be a larger canvas.  I think I want to go big on the dress, with vibrant colors.  Stay tuned!

I love her book and loved seeing Julie's stuff at CHA. Everyone says it looks easy, but I don't think it is as easy as it looks. I would take her class if she came around again. Thanks for posting it.
