Today I was in the mood for making some 4X4 pages of chunky book collage art. Funny how I use to hate turquoise, but have a new found love for it. I remember growing up with these colored walls back in the 50's. It seems everything was either turquoise or pink! The outside of our house was actually pink!
My cousin had written me a letter (I know a rarity these days with the internet). I love her hand writing and I couldn't bare discarding it, so it became part of the collage. The lace is a piece that I got from Lisa.
Here are some others that I finished up for the day.
I enjoyed playing with different colored backgrounds.
I was looking for my roller sponge brush but couldn't find it so dabbed Modge Podge on it with a regular sponge brush. It had a coarser texture than I would like.
I think the next ones that I do, I will try coating in wax. I also used distressing ink on the edges. I need to work on figuring out how NOT to have wrinkles in the paper. Perhaps a different glue?
as you can see these can get quite addicting!
