Paper Collage Surrealism

I have had part of this idea of surrealism planned but could not think of a way to complete it, then today it all came together...

Really pleased how the pink and blue work together with the black and white..

PaperArtsy Pearly Christmas

My turn over on the PaperArtsy blog today. I have been busy making some cards, place cards and gift tags with some of the stamp range of Squiggly Ink.

For each set of stamps I used I made a card, place card and Gift tag. This range was coloured with some Distress Oxides and some PaperArtsy pearl glaze over the top.

I used some of the fab colours from the Fresco Chalk paint range from PaperArtsy and some pearl glaze.

Used just one colour here, Caribbean Sea Fresco Chalk Paint.

Great fun to use and quick,simple creations.

Paper Collage Mash up of Era's

I am always fascinated with old vintage black and white photographs. Here I have added some 80's footballers over the top of the photo..

Rounded off some of the corners on my substrate, and added some further papers..

Love the picture, close up..

Mixed Media Collage

The irregularity of packaging really appeals to me, and makes for a cool substrate..

A mash up of stamping gelli plate experiments and some mark making.. like the black and yellow.

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.

Mixed Media Paper Collage

My main focal point of this collage is a cutting from a magazine, really love the subject matter and the colours.

Mixing with a piece of brayered acrylics..

Found some waste die cut card to frame some of the men..

Free hand signature!!

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 Mash Up

I wanted to incorporate some of my stamps within a collage..

The stamp is by PaperArtsy and is from the Urban Snapshots US section. Love the photographic quality!!

Mixed up with some torn papers, punched paper, and a recent play with Distress Oxides.

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..
