Julie has been posting 3 steps at a time, I am sadly behind at the moment, but am catching up! Hopefully I will be finished early next week.
The first three steps are as follows:
Your collage can be on any surface as long as it will "take" the techniques. For example, cardboard, canvas, cardstock, etc. I am not sure your collage will work on glass or metal.
Having said that, he we go! Today's techniques are: Paint, Paper, Ink
- Paint: Anything you can apply with a brush. Place paint on your surface to be the starting background of your collage. You can use all one color, mix and match, whatever!
- Paper: Attach paper onto the painted surface for an accent to the background. Any type of paper will do!
- Ink: Doodle, spill, splatter, dab, you name it! Add some ink to any areas of your collage.
The next stage involves charcoal, which I didn't actually have, but today I went and bought some from...a supermarket! I has the blender stump and everything! And I thought I would have to go to an art shop!
I am really busy at home at the moment and the photos are backing up a bit as I haven't had the time to blog about them. I have also been tagged by Michelle at Faerie*Dust*Dreams, I will do my bit soon! (Michelle does amazing collage and altered pieces, I love the crown she has as her header.) It's nice to be busy, but it does take away from my creative time a bit. But I have a little notebook, so I am sketching away whenever I have an idea!
