Default MIX108 - Brown Paper Collage (2/20/15)

Challenge Title: Brown Paper Collage
Hostess: dini (Dina K)
Keyword: MIX108

Happy Mix-Ability day! Are you ready?

For this week's challenge, I was inspired by the work of Naoko Stoop at brownpaperbagart. Here's one of her darling pieces:

So she's got a few things going on here that I'd like to see us try:

1. brown paper as the base (so use a paper bag or kraft paper)

2. a painted, printed or sponged background (masked hills seem common to many of her pieces)

3. hand cut or die cut elements to finish the scene, cut from text paper (phone book, newsprint, magazine or book pages)
Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from. If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX108) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!

then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
