Spring Collages

It’s collage time! Welcome to weeks 10 and 11 of the collage project I’m doing with my sister, Carolyn, following the prompts in The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman.

The week 10 prompt is Decollage. We had to glue down lots of layers of paper and then when the glue is nearly dry rip the top layers of papers away to reveal what’s underneath. Here’s what I did:

Spring Style Decollage - NB

I used soft pastel coloured papers and also added some dried pressed flowers – a little hint of spring….

The week 11 prompt is numbers – create a collage with numbers as the focus. Here’s my offering:

Numbers - NB

A vintage blue collage with a spring twist with the added dried pressed flowers. And of course the numbers were included and I used vintage ephemera for that. Some erosion bundle papers went into this collage as well….

I had fun creating these collages. Next weeks theme is typography – something a little different for me. Looking forward to it…. !

Vintage Blue & Rust

vintage-blue-rust-nb

A collection of vintage blue and rusty coloured treasures from around my work room. Vintage dyed fabrics, a piece of dyed string, a vintage blue pressed hydrangea flower, a rusty coloured dried pressed rose, a rusty ring pull from a can – all on a vintage blue textured background. I painted the background paper with acrylic paints.

All these lovely things I collect inspire me and I will eventually use them in art work when the right project comes along. And I will then replace them with other lovely things… !
