I am finding it difficult to create art by crafting at the moment, as opposed to painting. The major reason is that my stuff (stash) is packed away and I have to select materials before I start to work. And of course pack them away again afterwards. I do make a point of creating a couple of cards for an atc challenge/trade on PDA however. This current challenge has a theme of Solitude, I created two collaged art cards.
In this case I selected the main images/elements and then decided to work up a background by layering; four/five layers of coloured paper. craft papers, metallic candy wrappers and other bits and pieces.
I hope you like them:-
There is no rocket science involved, just basic techniques buut I still feel that it can work. I am not a fan of buying special materials to obtain new effects. I have been known to indulge but KISS has always been my motto as far as art is concerned. I even wrote an article based on quotes from artists of many persuasions. Take a look if you are interested, I would love to hear any comments you may have.
