As I challenge myself to write and collage for 31 days straight at my other blog
, I have been sharing my collage process here.
So today, I started with writing a Scripture (you could also do this with a quote or by free writing whatever comes to mind). I covered the page with various versions of the same thought. Since I was using a Wash and Sketch pencil, I washed over it with a wet brush to blur the words.
My self-appointed constraint for today was to use junk mail to find my collage images. After writing, I tore up a security envelope to glue down as a second layer, before choosing images from ads and a Cutco catalog.
After pasting them down, I washed over the pages with red and violet watercolor paint.
Once this dried, I added the collage images and then stenciled over the images with gesso.
