I’ve created another batch of new collages. They are all for sale, just in time for the winter holidays. (Prices are given in the captions under the photos.)
I decided to spend a week dedicated to making new collages. In addition to the postcard size ones I usually make, I decided I wanted to go bigger too. The collages in this post are the result of my week of cutting out then gluing down little bits of paper.
Every bit of every one of these collages was cut from an old magazine or catalog or acquired from a thrift store or junk shop. I didn’t buy any new materials for these pieces of art! How’s that for Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle?
The first one I made was a large (14″ x 11″) mixed media piece about my feelings surrounding money. Called The Root of all Worry, it took me at least six hours to complete. My favorite part of it is the little treasure chest full of coins in the bottom left corner..
My next collage is called Follow Your Heart. This one is mixed media too. I really enjoyed working with more than paper.
On the day I made Follow Your Heart, I also made Be Kind. I was pretty excited to create two collages in one day. Be Kind is also a mixed media piece. I told you I was really digging mixed media.
On the third day of my collage week, I had to travel, so I only got one done. It’s called Great Day.
On the fourth day of collage week, I worked on a big one. It’s called Who’s the Queen?
Just in time for the holidays…a reminder to Look on the Bright Side.
Bee Kind…to bugs and plants, the earth and each other. This collage was handmade from a post card saved from the recycling bin, a wooden ladybug from the bottom of the thrift store barrel, metal accents scavenged from old jewelry, and clippings from old magazines and catalogs. It’s a great gift for the nature lover/reuse enthusiast on your holiday shopping list.
Go ahead. Start Your Transformation Today. This collage can help by reminding you of your goals every time you look at it.
The last collage I made in my on my seventh day of collaging is called You are Capable of Amazing Things.
