Nellie Wortman

I believe that we all have a story to tell and everywhere we go we leave evidence of this and it through my pieces of art, that I share my stories. I love working with old, tattered, vintage and recycled items and incorporate them into my pieces of art and give them a new breathe of life.

About this course

In this class, I will teach you many techniques in how I create my backgrounds that I use in many of my books.  I will walk you through the steps in creating a book out of your own background papers.  

Not only will I be teaching you how to make your own background papers, I also discuss how I use my own photos from travels and artwork that I have previously created, to enhance the background papers, along with sharing the resource to where I get them printed, I show a video segment in how I create a painting and a painted book cover, I show how I use the gelli plate as a canvas to paint on, I show 2 image transfers, where one of them I enhance with paints and incorporate it into a painted background, how I use a template guide to pick my pages for my books and along with the steps in sewing your pages into your book.

This is not a copy and paste project.  I teach you the techniques in how I work intuitively and through this process, create the pieces of art that I do. 

This class has over 7 hours of video content.  

Please note...This is not a class where I teach how I paint my landscape paintings.
