Collage To Go
This morning I wanted to be in the living room, watching a few of my favorite shows in front of the fire (yes the fire!) with my feet up. But I felt guilty not working on my art, so I put together this nifty little lap-sized collage kit.
It consists of an 18×24- inch piece of foam core I had lying around, for my lap, and a little basket that we brought peaches home in, containing a variety of papers, some glue, scissors, and a stapler.
Many of the monotypes I’ve been making have wound up in pieces in this basket. Delightful additions to the mix of papers for collage! While I sat there I was able to make five new collages. I’ll show you the individual ones in future posts.
This one was made using elements from a couple of the recent monotypes . . .
. . . you may recognize this one as it appeared in its original state:
I think the collage is even more fun.
