On New Year's Day this year my beautiful sister came over and we made collages!

I've always looked at collages and wanted to try them but didn't know where to start. I recently took a brief altered book class, which used collage and just decided to dive in!

Two great books to get started are Collage Couture and Collage Workbook.

Here are our projects:

A Tea Party!

We used canvas boards from Michaels, which are already primed, and put down acrylic paint. We used Mod Podge to attach photos, paper, and magazine clippings.  I also used Distress Inks and cut out a flower, butterfly, swirls and corners with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  This was sooo much fun!
