I mentioned in my prior post, I recently took an on-line class from Christina Romeo called Whimsical Mixed Media Collage. I love whimsy and her style of art and I'm having so much fun making new pieces.
Pictured below was my work table Saturday morning. I was working on 7 doll collage pieces at once.
I started by drawing a bunch of faces in my sketch book and colored them with water colors. This was just me practicing, but some of them came out okay, so I used them in my collages.
I really like them on the white plain background, it has a very clean look.
The large black doodle flowers, I painted on tissue paper. I've used them before in my art journal and like the pop it gives.
And of course, if you follow my work, I always love to use the Metro tissue paper from 7Gypsies.
This is a great way to use up scrap paper too.
For the tags, I glued the images onto a cereal box carton, so they've have a sturdier weight.
These are so much fun to make, I can't wait to make more! Thanks Christina for the inspiriation - love the whimsy!
Hope you had a nice long weekend. Happy 4th!
