Mission: Collage {part deux}

Ok! Now we're off and running! If you missed the first three steps to our collage, you can find them here. I hope you had fun with them!

Here are the next three steps:

4. Chalk/Pastels/Artist Crayon: Apply to random areas of your project- you can draw, add shapes or simply add color here and there.

5. Photograph: Use a new or vintage photograph and attach it to your collage. You can sew, glue, staple, transfer..you name it. Your picture can have neat, crisp edges or you can distress the edge, use decorative punches or scissors.

6. Charcoal: Use charcoal to add another layer of depth to your collage. You can color any areas you would like with the charcoal! The other day I posted a quick charcoal how-to here.

Don't forget these steps are outlined in Sally Jean's book. If you want to explore more in depth, don't forget to check it out next time you're in the bookstore!

Hi, Julie...I sent you an e-mail. I'd really like to participate if it's not too late!

Mission: Collage looks like so much fun!

Hi!! I just finished the first 2 parts of the mission using the 6 starting techniques. I am soooooo excited about how mine is turning out. I am going to post my in process works as it evolves because I think that would be fun too. This normally isn't my "style" or "type" of art but like I said I thought it would be a great way to expand my creativity. In the short time and with just the few techniques we've used it has already.

That's great, Liz!! I am happy that some of the participants have not tried collage before and that you're getting excited about it!

It's not so much stalking as it is I am abundantly impressed (and a little jealous) of your artistic eye.

So how do you think Britney did?

I'm so excited...I just ordered the book from the library. Now, I can read about what the heck I'm doing. I'm stuck at the charcoal point....don't think I have any. Off to search.
