Collage on Kraft Card

This idea of my collage came together over a couple of days, I have this car stamp by Indigo Blu. I wanted a feel of falling!

Inked up the stamp and stamped 3 impressions, each one fading out..

I introduced some red via the top part of the packaging from some dry cat food!

Torn, Ripped and Burnt Collage

This fortnight PaperArtsy have a great challenge called Torn, Ripped and Burnt. Darcy has provided a wealth of inspiration, they can be found here.

My inspiration for the substrate came from Claire Snowdon. I used whole pages from a magazine and off set each page before glueing together.

I have been working with parchment recently, so had a go at some burnt highlights. I was in the garden, and took lighter direct to the parchment, It started to bubble, and after 5 seconds caught fire, so if trying this make sure you are outside.

I used a sample of silk fabric and tore into strips along with some medical gauze.

I liked the way the threads started to come away, so used these along with the medical gauze to create some texture and a sense of movement.

With a scrap of calico, I made a small cut and gently ripped to create a open frame for my fish, Mini 100 from Paperartsy.

Great fun, great to play with fabrics and fibres..
