Autumn Mixed Media


It's no secret that collage is my favorite, I love nothing more than sit in the floor with all my supplies spread out around me and rip and glue paper......until that is a certain toddler wakes up and wants to carry my bits of paper elsewhere..... 

Anyways, collage (or mixed media whichever you want to call it) I've found is challenging to teach because of limited table space and time constraint, BUT, me being the rediculous person that I am, ended up only being able to narrow the ideas for this class down to four projects and decided to let them do their favorite. 

Insane juggling at it's finest, my friend.

These are the four.


They chose the pumpkins and witches hats.

No pictures of the process because I can't snap and do insane juggling at the same time and apologies in advance for the crappy quality of pictures. Sleep deprivation, two classes in one day and a nursing session that was needing to happen, all contributed to this. Excuse over.

Here is what we played with: inks, stencils, sprays, tissue paper, scrapbook paper, paint, mod podge, crackle paste 















I didn't get the ideas nessesarily from any one source but here are a few that I drew inspiration from!
