Collage Tutorial 9. Materials from Nature

Untitled-1s

I really enjoyed creating the nature collages. I drifted back to the Summers of the ’60’s  when with friends, running fast on the path to the beach ,our feet would burn:) I also remembered organizing the nature table at primary school. My favorite subjects were, art,  nature and social studies. I collected many of the coastal found objects items from Australian beaches and from my own backyard.

Bonus Collage. Ugly Hair. 30 Days of Collage.

I had so much fun making these collages!

This challenge has been more liberating in more ways than one. Only using glue, scissors and magazine cut outs, I created a series of collages in ’60s style and finally got the chance to use some of my vintage magazines for art.

Collage Tutorial 1 “Artplay”

My first practical day of the “30 Days of Collage” by Stephanie Levy course.

It was Melbourne Cup Day  so this was an excuse for me to grab a (naughty snack attack) stash to help me along with my artplay day. I gathered all my paints , crayons, salt, tapes and began.

The first lot of images are the process using, paint with salt, glue , tape, pastel and more…The second lot of images are the finished result.

What a fun way to get a big bunch of gorgeous papers together for creating collage and books !

and a few more papers felt pen, masking tape and water.

Thanks Stephanie!
