1. You don't have to 'think' and can 'anyhow do' and it can still turn out ok
2. Nobody can ever recreate the same thing - not even yourself - so every collage is one of a kind
3. I'm not good at being neat and clean (ok this is the main reason)
So here's a recent collage adventure that I enjoyed - we did this class in June - an altered 7 Gypsies Receipt holder.
Here are a couple of close ups:
The secret to easy collage is to just stain everything brown! ('cos ink covers a multitude of 'sins' don't you know - haha!). But here's a helpful secret ingredient that makes for nice even staining!.......WATER!
When rubbing Distress ink all over your collage piece, try spritzing your ink-laden sponge / foam with a few spritzes of water before rubbing it all over your paper - works for me!
OK....gotta run! Off to teach class today - woo hoo! Go stain something K?
