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!
