Good value but video stops too soon Review by Annette

I love the paint over collage technique and I can never see enough! I was disappointed that the video (which I always watch on "MUTE" mode so I never hear anything... so visuals are SUPER important to me) really just went through laying out the pictures. It didn't get to the painting which is the "meat" of paint over collage technique. However the few other photographs in the PDF were adequate to show the general technique and for the price it is a great!

I would never have known how to do this. It was a clever approach to make painting less demanding. I really enjoyed this lesson!

Wonderful tutorial Review by Mary

This is a wonderful way to learn the basics of making a fantasy house collage. Only taking one of Staci's workshops is better.

Easy to follow & fun project Review by Dottie P

I was very happy with this step-by-step project. It was my first "article" purchase so wasn't sure what to expect. Following the artist's technique, I completed a project (turned a photo of my daughter's surburban home into a beach-front retreat for a holiday gift) -- thrilled with the results! The short video included on placement/composition was great & I'd like more of this artist's videos as it was very well done. I have purchased many e-courses & watch way too many you-tube art tutorials, so I have tons of experience in watching videos -- this one was up there with the best. Well worth the $2 !

Organized, easy to follow Review by Dottie

This was my first "article" style purchase & found it easy to follow & understand the artist's steps. I completed a project using her techniques (turned my daughter's surburban home into a beach-front retreat) for a holiday gift). Very happy with the results! There was a very short video showing the artist's suggestions for placement/composition that was great. Would like to see more video projects by her as it was very well done (I've purchased lots of e-courses & spend way too much time watching you-tube tutorials so have tons of time watching artists' videos -- this artist's video explanation & quality was up there. Well worth the $.
