Surfing Dinosaurs Collage Art

Hello Everyone!

I have another page for my sketchbook for the Brooklyn Art library. I started with the woman on the surfboard and went from there. 

In addition to the surfer I had these left over dinosaurs that were perfect for this collage. 

I figure that dinos would love surfing (my imagination can run a little wild, lol) It was fun to put pieces together and create a little scene the makes me smile when I look at it

Space Beach Girls Collage

Hello Everyone!

Today we have another collage. I created a fun scene with some some girls on the beach and put them in space.

This was so much fun to put the pieces together. The girls look like they are having a lot of fun on top of the Earth, lol

I added some detail to the collage by using my Prima Marketing Watercolors and some hand crafted watercolors. 

I think that added just the right touch to this piece.

It is fun to collage and to put two things together that don’t usually go together. Like beach and space. 

This was just a fun, quick collage that really enjoyable to create.

Dinosaur Bird Collage Art

Hello Everyone!

I just started on my Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project Vol 15 journal. Whew that was quite a sentence, lol. For this version I am going to do collages and just let my imagination flow. 

I will film and document each of the pages I create and take you along on my journey. 

I started with the dinosaur and created the page around him. By digging through my collage pieces I was able to find the elements that complemented the dinosaur perfectly.

I decided to doodle around the sun to create some more dimension and interest to the page.

Beautiful Stranger Collage

Hello Everyone!

Today I have another collage, this one is titled Beautiful Stranger.

I started with using one of the pages I created for the video how to start a blank journal page. The teal greens and texture just spoke to me and I was inspired to create with it.

The girl is from an old pattern and the balloon behind her is from an old magazine. I found the text in magazines as well.

To finish off the collage I used Gelatos to highlight areas and then I outlined parts with a brush pen. For the last step I took a bottle cap and stamped circles all over using acrylic paint. 

I love having are ready created backgrounds in my stash, it helps with the creative process and keeps me inspired.

Cat and Butterflies Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

I am trying something new, and that is doing the art challenge for Oddball Art Co! I am in love with her designs! I just found her (I know, I am behind the times, lol) but now that I found her I want all the digi stamps, lol

I was inspired by the theme, which is “Life Size Leprechauns and Unlucky Clovers.”

I found this fantastic cat on her website I knew that the cat should be on a rock in a field of clovers.

I used college elements for the rock and the four leaf clovers. I used dictionary pages for the background with distress ink, paint, and stencil.

By adding butterflies and dots and quotes to the page I was able to add a lot more interest. I am really loving challenges, I think it allows me to grow as an artist and expand my abilities.

Mixed Media Collage Art #1

Hello Everyone!

I have really been getting into collages. It is a fun way to explore my creative process and really stretch me creatively.

I started with a canvas board and added acrylic paint and stencils and stamps and splatters to add detail and dimension to the background.

Once I was happy with the background I added the collage pieces on top. I like to find images in magazines and catalogs. You never know what can be combined to create an art piece.

To finish the piece I added details with paint pens. I think that added he detail that the piece was missing. 

This was a lot of fun and I will continue to explore my collage capabilities this year. 

Where do you fine images to use in your collages?
