Mini collages



In some recent free samples from Hahnemuhle were several small 3" x 4" sample paper pads. There is no indication of which type of paper, but it is not very thick - I imagine a drawing paper. Having recently watched a Youtube video by Caterina Giglio I thought I would follow her example and play around with some my art scraps to make some tiny collages.

The materials used include gesso, texture paste, handpainted and printed papers, teabag paper, lino and foam stamp prints, crayon rubbings, book pages, acrylic paint and ink, watercolour pencil, postage stamps, sketched images and fabric scraps.

It is quite addictive - not sure what I am going to do with them, but they might end up in some form of book.

Re: Mini collages

These are lovey - a visual feast! It is quite a challenge (for me, at least!) to paint anything on a 3x4" piece of paper, so I'm wowed by these!

Re: Mini collages

They're adorable! Are they thin enough to mount in a book?

Re: Mini collages

Thank you JayJay and Cyndi. I am used to working small, so no problem for me. The collaged elements are quite thin (mostly tissue and tea bag paper) so these should easily fit in a small book structure.

Re: Mini collages

Thanks Wave Rider. Working this small means there is no major time/materials investment so it is quite freeing just to be able to play around when I have a few moments to spare. Also, I used to paint miniatures, so I have a problem with working large!!
