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…. !

Colour Plunge

This is week 5 of a collage project I’m doing with my sister Carolyn, we’re following the prompts in The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman. This week’s prompt is colour plunge – create a collage using only different shades of one (or almost one) colour. I did three collages in total…

Vintage Pale Blue - NB
Vintage Pale Blue

The first collage is made up from vintage pale blue papers and some fabric from an erosion bundle….

Prussian Blue - NB

This collage is again blue but totally different blues – rich dark Prussian blue tones to this one. The fabrics in this came from my erosion bundles….

Roman Baths - NB

The last collage is made using vintage pale green papers, with tiny hints of turquoise here and there. I used some erosion bundle papers in this one. There’s a tiny piece of scrim on the left and some vintage cellotape on the right to add extra vintage touches.

All three collages measure 8″ x 8″. They all turned out completely different to how I originally intended them to be but I like them. Next week’s prompt is image pairings – I need to think about this one….
