How to Blend Collage Images into an Art Journal Page
Hi there! I've got a "Crash the Stash" video up today for the Shawn Petite Creative Team! In this video, I'll show you how I created this sweet bird family using Shawn's collage sheets and some of my favorite art supplies and techniques. I'll show you how to seamlessly blend collage images into a busy background so that they appear painted into the page. I'll also show you step-by-step how I build up a messy background and apply the collage images and text on top!
You can visit my Youtube channel and check out the video HERE or you can view below:
You can also hop on over to Shawn Petite's blog to see the list of supplies used! I absolutely love to use birds in my art whenever possible. And I LOVE to use my kids' handwriting as well (as evidenced by the words "bird family" scrawled in bold, black pastel at the bottom corner by my youngest!)
And of course, I LOVE juicy drips, bright colors and messy backgrounds! I hope you are inspired to create your own mixed media collage. I'd love to see what you've made!
