Week 3 Challenge #71 - Collage and TWIST Multimedia

Image may contain: tree, plant, sky, outdoor and nature

A stunning capture of the King Billy Pine Track at Cradle Mountain thanks to Ben O'Loughlin who says:

The ground here is littered with the remains of trees that have fallen here throughout its history, which are slowly consumed by this verdant carpet of moss, lichen, slime moulds and fungus which in turn feed the vascular plants and trees. Even in the depths of winter this forest does not sleep.


What is the current challenge?

Collage, collage, collage... 

TWIST venture into multi- media
(multimedia means using two or more mediums together: so paint and texture paste or glue and paper or seed beads and paste/glue or ribbon, flowers and paint......)

Random Number Prize

Collage  is a technique of an art production where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippingsribbonspaint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas.

Week three and it is plain to see the challenge is throwing up it's own challenges!

I wanted to demonstrate how you can combine collage and multi media easily:

In my first card, I have use Dylusion's paints to create a background by smearing various colours to create a moody backdrop for my trees, which are die cut out of music sheets. Add the sentiment and the bird and some shiny mount for effect........

In the second one, I have used the same paper to diecut the branch. I have used various scrap pieces of paper to create a layered background - the sky is a scrap left over from working with Dylusional sprays for another project.The sun's rays are from texture paste with some paint added to colour them  and some kiddie glitz glue for the centre of the sun.

See, it is not that hard......just get creative!

The DT have some things to share too.
