Another New Collage

Can you believe it? Another new collage completed. Although, I already fell off the once a week wagon, I am happy to report that I am back to my collage schedule. Last week I simply had an unplanned blip in my schedule.

This collage was inspired by a black and white image of a house from my collection of art postcards. I worked the other colors and visual textures into the collage as a contrast to the stark house image. I also found a "Do Not Enter" sign that I thought was funny because while the background makes the house look cozy, the flat black and white image looks almost ominous. You like?

New Year, New Collage

With the new year already underway, I decided to splurge a little and get a new sketchbook. The old one was great, but I wanted something with thicker paper and spiral bound, so my collages would be easier to photograph and share with you.

I'm committing to a collage a week, so wish me luck! Above is my first one. It's an ode to the snowy start to the year but is filled with cheery colors to remind me that spring is just around the corner. Enjoy!
