Lots and lots of collage happened for me during the retreat... I loved
having all that time to play!
I brought along a selection of canvases to work with, but I had also thrown in a stack of cheap chipboard coasters I'd picked up at Michael's. They were sooooo cheap- I think they were 8 or 10 in a pack, and the packs were 10 cents. Yeah, 10 cents! Well I will definitely be using these alot- the size was fantastic for me (I really like the tiny size- it takes the intimidation out of the composition for me). Just some sanding to take off the printed design, a little gesso and that's all there was to it!
I guess it's really hard to tell in the photos, but I like to "bump" all my elements up with chipboard, no matter what the project- including collage. The ModPodge fills in so nicely.
This was so much fun to make!
Well I'd say you turned that 10cents into 10 dollars worth of creativity.
adorable little art piece!!
