Colour Charge

Welcome to week 4 of a collage project I’m doing with my sister Carolyn, following the prompts from Randel Plowmans book The Collage Workbook. This weeks prompt is colour charge – add colour to a collage that’s primarily black and white. Here’s what I did:

Vintage Orange - NB
Vintage Orange

This is a vintage black and white collage coloured with a fairly bright orange. I’ve used orange printed material and orange oil pastel. This collage measures approx. 6″ x 6″.

A Touch Of Rus - NB
A Touch Of Rust

For this collage I printed out some of my own black and white photographs and cut them up for the collage base. Then I added rusty colours in the form of watercolour paint, rusty paper scraps and some fabric – both from my erosion bundle material. This collage measures 8″ x 8″.

Next weeks collages are going to be colourful….

  1. I like that you used some of your own black and white photos and made them into collage papers – a wonderful idea, Evelyn! ๐Ÿ˜Š Both of your collages are fabulous!! The colors really pop on both of them. ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘

  2. Evelyn, I just read your Whole blog! I love to do that and then cycle back through my IPad of blogs. Iโ€™m a Texas friend of Carolynโ€™s and am working through the book because you You two๐ŸŒปThanks for sharing your results! Laura aka Hastypearl

  3. Gorgeous colours, Evelyn! Nice and vibrant. Thank you for your visit – sorry to be so long replying but I’ve had a lot on my plate recently. Good news – my hubby’s plaster is now off and he’s got a boot for a fortnight, then he’ll be driving again, so he will be OK to look after me when I have my operation. First pre-assessment appointment today, which went well, and I’m seeing the anaesthetist next week, so hopefully we’ll soon get a date for my operation.


I'd love to hear your thoughts and observations...
