A Fall Collage

As many of you probably know, I really love playing with color!  So I created this mixed media collage tonight of leaves:

Fall leaves collage with gelli prints etc

I used a variety of papers – some my own that I printed with the gelli plate, leftover paint and syran wrap.  I also used scrapbook paper and a dictionary word and photo.

After I glued my papers to 140 lb hot press watercolor paper with a glue stick, I outlined the leaves with pencil.  Then I smudged the outlines to give them dimension.

I did a similar “summer” collage with summery colors, here.

Happy Weekend Friends!  :-)))

P.S.  I have decided to take a break this Saturday and Sunday from posting on my blog.  I am pretty tired from a busy week at work.  So I decided to rest up.  Look forward to seeing what you are creating!  🙂

    • Thanks Jodi! We are closing up our trailer at the lake this weekend. It’s a big job so I will be thankful when it’s done. I will be resting and “arting” on Sunday. Looking forward to that! Have an awesome weekend too! 🙂

  4. Beautiful collage, Jill, and I really need to learn how you do your deli or gelli or however you spell it prints because you are creating beautiful stuff always, particularly whenever you incorporate that in. Love the fall colors too! Enjoy your weekend, Jill! I hope your leaves are starting to change there!

  6. Wow Jill, this is a fabulous collage. I do like how you used the pencil to add dimension. A rest sounds good, enjoy. I decided to only blog three days a week because I knew I couldn’t keep up with a daily posting. That’s why I named my blog MTW, to keep myself obsessive self at bay! 😄

  7. Pretty! I love all the fall colors you are using lately. I used to blog all the time but rarely do any more. It is good as a record of what how you have progressed art wise though.

    • Thanks Suzink! Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I like blogging but I’m so behind at home from going to the lake every weekend for the last 5 months. We are finishing up this weekend. I look forward to having more time for art! :-)))

  11. Wow, this is beautiful!!! I was wondering how you did it because some of the leaves seem to be transparent… Are they from transparent paper? Anyway, this looks absolutely great!!! 🍁🍂🍃 Wishing you a wondeful recreative weekend!!! Enjoy! 🌞
