It is the 78th day of 2013 and so far I've made 77 collages.
I'm feeling rather pleased about the whole thing.
This first batch was created exclusively with the wonderful papers Lorinda sent me as part of our collage fodder exchange.
I tried a monochromatic purple from her papers because I'm part of an upcoming purple swap.
It's my least favorite of the bunch.
I raided my own stash and ended up with this riot of purple instead:
I'm also part of a monochromatic orange swap:
and since I've been really enjoying limiting my resources, I decided to make some postcards using this collage sheet from Lee:
The rules are to make postcards using only the images from the sheet. You can re-size, duplicate or otherwise alter the images and add your favorite art supply, but you can't use any outside pictures.
Here's my take on the challenge:
For this next one, I had greatly enlarged the label for "cape cod cranberries" and didn't know what to do with it. I thought about cutting up the letters to make new words, and decided I'd get some help form an on-line anagram maker.
Who knew that the letters in "cape cod cranberries" would also spell "creep in, sacred cobra?"
I thought I was done with this challenge and went and had some dinner.
When I came back to the art room there were still quite a few unused bits from all the sheets I'd printed. Among the bits, lots of letters, and me with the anagram maker at my disposal.
Andrew R. Titus became "Tawdrier Nuts"
and James L. Titus became "Lustiest Jam"
Can you hear my peals of laughter?
God, I crack myself up.
If you want to have your own fun with Lee's collage sheet, head over to Mail Me Some Art, print the sheet, join the swap and get your postcards in the mail by April 15th.
