Collage Art - Part 2

Pin It!
So, I wanted to try 
the collage art again.
(Please see the previous post about 
the inspiration piece at Hallmark) 
The last project turned out . . . 
just OK. 
(I hate just OK).

I like this attempt better
 I used a deep, square canvas this time & wrapped the
scrapbook paper around the edges. 

By the way, this is me using Mod Podge -

"Oh no!! The paper is warping! It's WARRRPPINNGG!"
Oh well, it turned out alright anyway.
I definitely recommend putting the Mod Podge
on the bottom first, letting that dry,
then putting it over the top.

 And, just using four kinds of scrapbook paper
seemed to work better than the fifty pieces I used on my
previous attempt.  :D

On the advice of Cathycan,
I used an ink pad on the corners to add a little character.

Warmly, Michelle



  1. So cute! I think it turned out great! I'm visiting from the CSI Project. Following you now! :)

  2. Simply beautiful. There are so many possibilites with this too!

  3. I love the ink pad on the corners and edges. It looks great!

  4. I love this! It matched my house perfectly!!!

  5. this is wonderful any tip and tricks for those corners?

  6. I recently did a collage, never having done one before, and someone commented that it looked like scrapbooking. I couldn't decide whether to be flattered or hurt ;-).

    I like both your collages even though you did not. Maybe you are like me, I never like something I do because I just does not turn out the way I had pictured in my mind.


I read each comment & enjoy hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time!
