Scrap Box Collage


Today's exercise was to create a collage with paper, beads and objects from my scrap box. I found a small piece of heavy watercolor paper that had a wash of warm yellow for the background. Torn paper, beads, pieces of melted tyvek, 3 oriental coins and string all play together in this small composition.

If you have a scrap box or place where you keep things too good to throw away, challenge yourself to use only it's contents as a source of materials for your next collage. You might be surprised what treasures are waiting to be rediscovered.

Sharon, I can hardly wait to see your ATC.
Maybe we were picking up on each other's creative energy.
