I have arrived at the half way point of my self-appointed challenge of making a collage each day
. Today, my empty Kleenex box inspired me, just as I was about to put it in the recyle bin. Simple flower shapes, pleasing colors and the textured background.
Voila! My idea for today's collage was born. First I sprayed the pages with water, then smeared black distress ink on the pages. While that dried, I grabbed a scalloped circle punch. I started punching out some of the flowers with color and then some in gray and white and one blue one.
I glued the circles to the page and left them to dry.
In the meantime, I made a tree stamp with yarn and glue. (Haven't used it yet, maybe for tomorrow's collage.) I also picked up an autumn leaf on my walk, which I want to use as a color palette inspiration.
Well, the glue finally dried on my original project. I really didn't know what to do next, so I grabbed my box of words that I had been collecting from magazines. I had these action verbs from one magazine, so they gave some uniformity to my page. I glued them down. Sprayed some red ink, used a yellow highlighter, and stamped a phrase on the page.
