Into The Age of Darkness

For the record, it's not always about me.
Susan speaks:
I took a class from Jill Berry called "Into The Age of Darkness".  I love dark colors so this class was a match made in heaven for me.

The focus was to experiment with many different paints and tools on black paper, specifically Arches Text Wove. She brought a lot of supplies so we could test all sorts of stuff and do plenty of what-if with everything.

When we were finished we made a continuous four-part pamphlet book of our papers, with painted Tyvek for each part's signature cover.

A bonus was using one of our papers for a slipcase for our book.

That looked like it was a fun class. Too many conflicts, too many choices some days. What's a girl to do?

Thanks for the comments. More from me to come later this month.

Nice work! I agree with Robyn about photo #3; I would love to take a class like this.
