We marbled several types of papers with inks. We also painted with watercolors to make flowers and fish to use in the collages. Then we folded origami swans and fans.
This is one of the 8" by 8" collages I did. When I came home, I added the fancy paper clips.
This is the second collage I did adding the gold buttons from my stash. It was a fun class, and we did get a lot done.

This is the open version of the Carousel Book class project I made at Portland's Art and Soul. It has 3 layers with the top two cut out to show the parts behind. I based it on Nature as usual and have leaf shapes free standing in the openings.
This is what happens when you put the covers together to form a star.

This is another version of the 4 patch quilt that will be donated to charity. I liked experimenting with the design. This one has 4 colors, but the yellow was only used for the smaller pieces so it wouldn't overwhelm. The tan has more pieces but not as many as the red or green.

http://artsquaredgroup.blogspot.com The word this time was Natural. What is more natural than a flower? The petals are suede and machine stitched down. The background is a cotton sunprint and is machine quilted. The center is a button. The binding is a stipe with a metallic gold in it.
