On Sunday, I spent a couple of hours with a good friend of mine who loves to do collage art. She brought her magic suitcase full of papers, stamps and paint. I provided more paper, glue and ribbon.

To begin, we did a "warm up" of several 1-minute collages. (You would be surprised how few pieces you can select, cut and glue down in one minute.) My first few attempts were pretty ugly and stressful. My friend had great success, but she's had some practice. It was funny because we both squealed at the sound of the timer counting down the seconds. After the warm-up, we each created several pieces.
The pieces shown above are three of mine that I found to be most successful. (They took more than 1 minute!) The first one with the apple incorporates painted doily and chinese origami paper, also scraps of metalic gold paper. The second mixes an old lithograph with a page from a Boden catalog, stamping and frayed ribbon. The third is my favorite for it's mix of red, gold and green. Lipstick pink is awesome. Happy spring!
