Today I am sharing my creation for the Unstampabelles current challenge here
Collage, collage, collage…
TWIST venture into multi- media
(multimedia means using two or more mediums together: so paint and texture paste or glue and paper or seed beads and paste/glue or ribbon, flowers and paint……)
Random Number Prize
Collage (from the French: coller, “to glue”;[ is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippings, ribbons, paint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.
There are lots of examples on Pinterest if you want to waste a few hours!
Use the ‘collage in cards’ search for some simple examples
This one was out of my comfort zone. My creation is more on the side of multi media. I think it still fits the collage brief.
I started by adding some colour to my texture paste. This was added to a white mount and then a black mount and finally to my card front. When the texture paste was dry I used the same spritz to add a few splashes of colour. I then added my die cuts, positioning until I was happy with the result. The “DAD” is die cut from cork from the local craft store the tools are die cut in a bronze shiny paper from my stash along with a contrasting black cardstock.
I hope to see you in the challenge.
