This collage was very therapeutic for me to make!
Perhaps it was cutting the squares and circles from my stash of hand-painted papers…
Or the act of glueing them to a piece of 9×12 inch paper?
I discovered that having the right tools made a big difference:
Cutter Bee scissors, may be small in size but they are SHARP! And making cutting paper a breeze!
I recently discovered Elmers, EXTRA STRENGTH glue sticks at Staples Office Supply store. I purchased a case of 12 to save money. I find they do have that little something EXTRA to glue the heavier papers. 🙂
I enjoyed the process of balancing color and patterns as I filled my paper. Some of the squares hung over the paper but I kind of liked that it wasn’t perfectly square.
I enjoyed adding circles that weren’t perfectly round and taking my time to fill each circle with color:
I finished it by adding some smaller circles on top of the larger ones:
It reminds me of decorating the house for Christmas…
Wishing you a JOY filled day – Cheers! 🙂
P.S. This is a fun way to use up some paper scraps from other projects.
