Light and Shadow Collage.

Incorporating some white acrylic into my collages.



I started off with a doodle of the chair, and the rest just started to happen. Using the white for the light coming in and the black from the chair legs for the shadows..

Paper Collage and Photography.

Having a play with some coloured backgrounds for my collages. Have used Distress Oxides..


The photograph is of some wild thistle just outside our house!!. Printed black and white on to some kraft card.


Next time I will enlarge the picture and just use a section so the thistles are more recognizable.

Tea Bag Collage!!

Trying out a coloured substrate with my collages..


I like the combo with some used tea bags, stamping onto kraft card and some other scraps.



Stamping onto tea bags works really well for me, detail is very crisp, again using some PaperArtsy stamps!!

Paper Collage with Mixed Media

I love the earthy-ness of Kraft card, and made this collage..


I had the book page left over from another project, and liked the ripped out section, this idea came into my head!!. I also found the word Appendix, again from a book page.


I found a square of Kraft card and some cream paper packaging that was all screwed up, some white acrylic paint completed the piece. 

Loving these neutral colours..

Some more collage here. I have added so colour by painting with acrylic paint onto an old cardboard packaging.


Love the effect of the ampersand stamped over the pic and the packaging!!
