I Went to Collage

Mixed Media Collage Wreath

I was curious if I could turn a Dollar Tree Wreath Form into a “canvas” to make a mixed media collage.  I wrapped the wreath form with two layers of cotton fabric and then covered them with a layer of Rigid Wrap plaster cloth.  It took overnight to fully dry, but the surface was fairly smooth.  YAY!

“Just Breathe” was my inspiration and I wrote out the words to save space.

I adhered ephemera not worrying about matching colors and made sure not to paint the “watch flower”.

I used Rust Effects paint on the edges and as shading around the chip board words. I had some paper flowers that I applied the rust paint and accented with the turquoise paint.

I like how the collage turned out but probably won’t make another one because it took a lot of time and the price point won’t cover my time.  However I am glad I tried collage!

      1. Oh, I understand. There are so many good blogs that we haven’t yet discovered. It takes time and the right moment to come upon a blog that one really wants to connect with.
