Staining! Stenciling! Stamping! Papers were flying; paint and creative juices were flowing as the 9 very lucky participants of the Jennifer Stone workshop created papers to be used in the creation of beautiful abstract collages. Two of whom made the trek from Texas!

Jennifer was a warm and generous instructor, willing to share her knowledge (and stamps and stencils) with us. She emphasized the design principles of dominance, repetition, and variety in shapes, color, and scale. We all had the opportunity to create multiple design studies that can be translated into larger finished works.
We found the workshop to be so inspiring that we were all saying "Let's bring Jennifer back!"
