E, F and G

I have been adding collage to finish some of my watercolor alphabet journal pages from the month of July.

I thought you might enjoy seeing them – before and after collage photos:

Letter “E” is for eyes:

AFC45C0A-1BF7-41B8-B17E-1B2B61FB6D93

864078EE-3962-4B37-9636-07D4989BFA49

For the collaged “hair,” I colored Swedish tracing paper with Derwent Ink Tense Blocks, added water to blend the colors and let dry.  I then sewed them to my paper with a light gray thread.  Her eyes were a little more sultry than I intended!  😉

Letter “F” is for Fridays, frogs, flowers and ferns:

5CA8E332-99C8-4DA4-AF6F-1A157BFA80B2

816B43F8-9D05-45F1-824D-1CD366EBDBEA

I stapled my handpainted collage papers to my watercolor paper.  I then covered the staples by gluing a circle over them.  The black letter “f” is a sticker.

Letter “G” is for mixing greens:

B9D15E47-A03C-4DDC-A67E-2BB8792C96DD

72905439-C317-4940-8A7A-5124D5539EF2

I attached the collage paper with a flower brad, glued a paper scrap with a square on top and added the “good” fortune:  You will hear good news today!

I hope to finish letters, “H” and “I” next week!

Happy Friday! Cheers! 🙂

  3. I love the idea of stitching the paper to your art piece and the addition of the collage on the G page really balances the piece.

    • Thank you, Carol 😊 I really enjoyed stitching on paper so will be doing more in the future! 💗 The collage does balance the watercolor on “G” – I see it now too. 👍
