Mission Collage-part 1



Here are the results after the first day of Mission Collage. Over at Julie's blog we are on a mission to create a collage with 18 steps. This is the result after the first 3 steps- paint, paper, ink. I'm feeling a little stuck at this point because I used more image type things for my paper and now in the second step I need to add photos...yikes. Oh, we are only making one collage to swap, but I decided to work on 2 so I'd have a back up just in case. These are both on 5 x 7 canvases. There is alot of acrylic paint laid down first and I used a little saran wrap wrinkled up to apply the last bits of paint. The papers are from old patterns. There is some distress ink and a bit of white gel pen on one of them. I thought it would be fun to share the process with you, so I'll post an update on these after each of the missions.
