Time for the September Collage Challenge hosted by Mary Green at Greenpaper.
For Mary's challenges, you must use at least a part of each of the three images that Mary provides.
I glued a bunch of scraps from my art table to a piece of water color paper. It is a good way to clean up and I don't have to feel bad throwing pretty paper bits away.
I put gesso over that to dull the colors. At the bottom I put the scraps on in a different direction so they could become part of the street along with the dairy coupon. I put gesso on top of that too but had to wash it off fast because it covered it up too much. I watered it down and added a little walnut stain so it would contrast with the rest of the background.
I used the flower petals from the calendar page as the rain drops and used bits of the golden-rod as a border. I felt like it needed something else so I ripped a piece of the calendar and added a flower to the corner.
I'm happy with the way it turned out! Please look here to see what the other participants made with the same images. They are very creative!
Thanks for the challenge, Mary!!!
