Third collage series

"fresh" collage on paper, 5x5" (c) 2010, Lynne Medsker

As I promised, today is the last collage post for a while. I seem to get on a tangent of one media and I don’t want you to become bored by the same topic over & over so the next few blog posts will be about digital art. Change is good!  These collage pieces were created on the background paper that used coffee & tea to create part of the design. You can read about how it was made by clicking HERE. The colors from the coffee & tea influenced my choice of other items to add to the composition, they all seem to have a more muted, natural tone to them, especially compared to the more colorful creations in my last post.

This series yielded two 5×7 images and a total of four 5×5″ images.

After cropping these (and a few other) compositions from the sheet of collage I had a nice selection of leftover scraps.

I sorted through those with an artist’s trading card (ATC) template and cropped out several cards – a few I would consider finished and others that will be great backgrounds for future use.

Just a reminder that the one-day collage workshop I am presenting on Saturday, March 20th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. will be here soon! The cost is $60 and includes all the supplies & mats for framing your creations.  The class size is small so be sure to sign up soon for this fun & creative Saturday!

And that concludes the blog posts on collage.  For now! 🙂 I feel like I’ve had more information to post than days to post it on lately.  I like it! I never want to feel like I am posting just because I should (although that happens occasionally!)

Flowing along,

  1. Thanks Martha! I am so hooked on it now! Keep wanting to do more & more. Look what you’ve done. 🙂 I’m anxious to go back to the scrap pieces that are leftover and build some more dimensions works with them too. Aahhh, so much to do in life!
