I wanted to make my collage on Tuesday but just getting to it in the very early hours of this morning. Here is my contribution to Artysville's Glue-It Challenge. I'm also going to link up with Sunday Sketches to share what I have been working on this week (more below).
I love green, can you tell? :
|I initially wanted to have the two pages flow together and|
painted both the same color background,
but they are two distinct collages, to me, and that's perfect.
|Green , though I love it so much, is a hard color to capture...|
|no matter how much I try to color correct the photos, |
each image has it looking a different green:) I tried to tone down the photo
because in reality its not so garish.
Clean up is tough in the early morning hours.
Hell what am I saying?
Its tough no matter what time of day it is.
I couldn't find my glue sticks,
where they disappeared to, I have no idea.
So I mixed a little glue with water.
The book I used to collage in is from a journalling class I took a couple of years ago. Here is a look at some old pages, I think these are from Summer 2011:
We did alot of collaging in that class and I miss it! I'm on vacation starting Wednesday and I plan on getting together with a friend who loves to collage as well.
I also took a stab at creating some art using acrylics. I am very dedicated to watercolors and switching off always feels like sort of a big thing for me.
I keep buying these little canvases when I go to Blick and the last time I was there I had to literally say STOP.And I promised not to buy more unless I do a damn painting. (I'm like to think that I am only a spendthrift when it comes to art supplies)... I went in without a plan so I wasn't expecting too much.
i had, had, HAD to cover that green blob LOL!!! haha.
I like how this turned out, this little piece (4"x4"), am pleased with how it looks. I'm glad I tried a little sgraffiti on the right side.
I started on another, larger (8"x 8") canvas board and primed it with some black I'll work on that during my vacation too.
Thanks for reading through this far!
Have a lovely week!
