I’m taking an online Paper Collage class from Dar James, hosted by Carla Sonheim. One of our assignments is to create three collages using the five basic shapes: Square, triangle, circle, oval and rectangle.
Using old magazines and a glue stick, I created these tulips:
A Picnic Ant…
And houses on stilts from my imagination:
These were so much fun to create. I suggest you give it a try!
Happy Monday! 🙂

Sometimes it is just fun to play with color and patterns. I painted these ants on 140 lb cold press Khadi paper with Winsor & Newton watercolors:
And then I made up this silly poem:
I remember my poor Aunt Penny,
Who loved squishing ants with her tennies,
Until one day,
The ants carried her away,
When she stepped on one too many!
I hope you get “carried away” creating art today! Happy Saturday! 🙂
