World Collage Day

I haven't used wood blocks for ages, so to celebrate World Collage Day, I came up with this. Found image, sand paper, some packaging from a bar of soap and a blob of plaster!!

Earth Day Collage

For Earth Day 2019, an initiative run by Paris Collage Collective. I used a crisp packet as my substrate, painted with acrylics and added some collage elements.

Over on the Paper Artsy blog the theme is maps and plans. I saw a fab post by Alison Hall using some Ellen Vargo stamps. Made this collage with some maps from a magazine and added some flowers from a stamp by Ellen Vargo.

Collage on Paper

This piece of paper was the result of moping up some ink from my glass mat. Decided to add a collage, found this picture and added some oil pastel and graphite.

Cuckoo Clock of Sorts!!

Tick Tock is the current theme/topic over on the PaperArtsy blog.

I have had this canvas for a number of years, so decided to recycle!!

Enjoyed using the filling tool that I found in a diy shop. 

Trying out some gold embossing onto painted rice paper.

And on to cardstock, forming parts of the cuckoo clock.

A different view outside.
