Collage Exploration

I recently purchase this book from Amazon:

71D81A81-2E61-4365-9887-CF3AD7380D2C

It has some fabulous ideas that have sparked my imagination!

Such as this collage exploration:

It was inspired by the recent “winter storm” we got over the weekend!

Yesterday, I did some organizing of my art supplies.  It inspired me to create these three collages that I glued in my art journal:

Each collage above has hand-stitching, can you find it?

Cheers! 🙂

    • Thanks Beverly for pointing out the negative space around them. I had not thought to look at that. 😉 I loved doing these as separate collages and then adding them to my art journal. Something I hope to explore more. 👍

  3. Time to get my sewing machine out again. Years ago before I started drawing and painting I created textile art. I need to get back to some of that again.

    • Hi Carol, I like how this book combines both. It is something fun to explore. I even added some of the contact tape textures to these collages. 😊
      I look forward to seeing what you create! 🎨😍
