Hi, Michelle here.... I originally designed Artful Papers as a part of a longer in person encaustic workshop. I found out, though, that students wanted more class time dedicated to creating their stash of collage papers. There is something irresistible about transforming ordinary gift tissue or vintage book pages into exquisite collage pieces. What could be more satisfying then having a whole stash of these lovely papers.

A student once told me, "I could do a whole class on just making collage papers." Just like that, Artful Paper was born!

....A word of caution, this class can be addictive.
