Last Friday I was able to get over to Ink About It and take a Play Time collage class by the very talented artist Kelly Kilmer. It was terrific fun and I explored a new style of collage. She directed us through several prompts and methods to make journal pages. Here is my first page.
I used a bunch of tape. I adore the tape across the top with the wet circles. Who am I kidding? I adore all the tape and she had a bunch for us to play with.
My next page was on a royal blue background, more tape and some souffle pens and stencils. Fun.
My third page and I used my own stamp.
Many opportunities to fill these pages with more imagery and words.
As I was in my studio (ahhhh....) yesterday enjoying a reconnecting experience with myself, I came across an old altered pocket calender I had from 2009.
My husband received from work through a vendor who had their name on the cover.
I covered it with collage and gel medium. The numbers we stamped on small pieces of paint chips. I also added some rub-ons.
It held up well. I am hoping for another mini calender to find it's way to me this year. Even though so many of us use our electronic devices for organizing our time....something about using a paper calender that is better for me. I altered another marketing calender last year too, see it here
Thanks for stopping by.
