It's the very last day of CP Creative Weekly for the month of February, and that means it's time for a "Pretty Party" giveaway! So tell us, what is your own unique version of collage? How do you go about using it on your projects? In asking you this, we're hoping to gather a host of new ideas to put forth about the subject come next Monday. We'll go ahead and select a set of favorites and from them, we'll select one winner to receive both the papers and stickers from the Pretty Party collection!
If you think about it, you use collages almost everywhere! At least I do. We have a bunch of different scraps of paper, notes and art on the fridge and walls. Even in the car there are collages to be had! I personally like them airy and not too layered. That's how I designed my layout - lots of little paper hearts that build a nice and "airy" cluster that can then be called a collage of paper hearts.
To me, collage is all about playing with paper in a new way, so I had a LOT of fun playing with the Crate lines to create this cute little village on top a hill. The layout is definitely outside-the-box for me, but I think it still has my style all over it!
The colours from the Farmhouse collection are some of my favorites! I really love a selection of the patterned papers as well and wanted to figure out a fun way in which to combine them. I used the light blue pattern paper as the base. I cut out different sized rectangles from each of the patterned papers and layered them on top of my tracing paper. To create detail, I added a few stitches and stamps, as well as some details at the top and bottom of the page - which conveniently establishes balance.
In conclusion, collage is a fun and easy way to experiment with lots of different patterns and colors, so why not give it a try yourself? The possibilities are infinite.
