Craft Room Collage
The Craftroom challenge this week is collage,
'A piece of art made by sticking various materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric on to a backing'
The word itself is from early 20th century and French in origin literally meaning 'gluing'.
I don't know about you but I remember doing collage pictures at school and gluing lots and lots of pieces of coloured tissue paper to make a picture - messy fun, and this was no different! So here is my picture, lots of images glued - I even got the tissue paper out, glued the IndigoBlue All Saints image, added the tissue paper and wrinkled slightly, when it was dry I rubbed Peeled Paint lightly over to highlight the creases. The background is IndigoBlu Map, stamped 4 times. Distress inks used are Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint. The flower is a Mulberry paper, cut with a TH die, swirl is a Marriann die.
Everything was given a spritz with Biscotti Perfect Pearls, although this shimmer doesn't show in the picture.
