Fly Away Home: Creating a Mixed Media Artist Book

October 9-11, 2020

Schedule: Friday-Sunday, 9am-4pm

Instructor: Roxanne Evans Stout

Registration Deadline: Registration Closed

Description

Gather with Roxanne Evans Stout in October 2020, and create a book that is dedicated to the birds, insects, and the winged creatures that we all love. Together we will delve into the concepts of nests and the pathways that we travel to and from the very place that is home to us in our hearts.

We will begin with texturing our pages, using gesso and modeling paste. Then we will scratch and scrape and mark our surfaces in unique ways, adding texture to our backgrounds. Next, we will add color and collage to our pages, using all my favorite techniques and my nature-based stencil designs, and make our own stamps. Lastly, we will add our focal points and details that will make our pages sing, including hand stitching and some more detailed mark making.

We will use a very simple technique to bind our pages into a single artist book that tells your own unique story.

I live and create in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the mountains and the river lands that surround my home are my constant inspiration. I share my art in workshops throughout the United States and have had my work shown and been published internationally. I also teach online workshops to students who are from all over the world and design stencils for StencilGirl Products. Teaching enables me to share my passion … nothing makes me more happy than helping my students through their own process of renewal. My goal is to help you find your own magic. Through my art I would like to convey the feeling of connecting, timelessness and re-creation.

My first book, Storytelling with Collage, was published in March 2016 by North Light Books. And my second book, Dancing on Raindrops, was just released in July, 2017. Both are available on Amazon Books.
As an artist I am constantly learning and growing. Art is my passion, my love, my soul.
