Guild member Dianne Daly, wowed us with her demonstration at our March 28 General meeting where she talked about and demonstrated her unique talent with collage. Many varieties of paper, stamps, fabric, ink, watercolor, and miscellaneous found items go into her amazing collage art pieces. Thank you Dianne, for a very educational and enlightening demonstration.
