Mosaic Guitar

Mosaic or Assemblage Guitar....

I have found a new passion!

And I'm lucky enough to have a boyfriend who fixes guitars, and when a particularly damaged guitar can't be fixed, sometimes the customer will leave the old clunker and I get to play with it.

Here's one that I embellished with all kinds of stuff.  Mosaics are wonderful and assemblage is a lot of fun!

Some of my students created "normal" mosaics, using tile and grout.  Isn't this beautiful?

And one brave student combined techniques and used "seed beads" to grout her guitar:

I just led another "Mosaic Guitar" workshop last week, and will do one in 2011.  Guitar provided....check my website for details:

Happy New Year!

SoulCollage® Retreat in the South of France.....

I am one who dreams of a peaceful and serene retreat in the South of France......

Perhaps somewhere near the beautiful walled city of Carcassonne?

Imagine spending time in a spacious, comfortable home with its own chef, chauffeur, and a pool.  If you love SoulCollage®, and making cards in community, and if you love traveling to other about joining us for a 6-day, 5-night SoulCollage retreat in southern France?  My friend and colleague Audrey Chowdhury and I will be hosting this workshop, which will include a trip to a local market, delicious wine tastings, and more. Mark your calendars.....there's plenty of time to start planning.  May 24-29, 2012.  That's a year and a half from now.  Wanna?
