Collage floral bouquet

Collage floral art

I put together a floral collage recently and am very excited to share it with you today.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’—πŸŒΊ

 

collage flowers - cut out shapes

After a Skillshare class by Claire Picard,

Art Collage – Create a Beautiful Paper Rose Bouquet,

I couldn’t wait to get started on my project.

I had some pretty pink scrapbook paper that I used to cut out shapes for my roses. I started by playing around with flower shapes to see what I liked. Then I got pretty excited, I can do this!

A light gray scrapbook paper was a nice contract to the pink flowers so I used that for the background.

The leaf shapes that I cut out:

Dark brown leaves – from a Christmas card
Bigger white leaves – from one of my ink sketches
Small light brown leaves – from a paper lunch bag

Once I had a nice design arranged, I took a picture of it so that I could refer back to it as I worked to glue things in place.

One lesson learned is that I will need a different type of glue next time around. Claire used PVA glue. She painted it on each piece and glued things down with ease.

I used a glue stick and it was quite a challenge. I’m not a fan of sticky fingers. 😁 So that will part of my process will need to change.

I glued down the flowers first and then worked my way out to the leaves.

Next a little ink detail pulled the piece together.

The final touch was using a white pen for additional bouquet filler.

It was so much fun putting this piece together and I love how it turned out. I am excited about the many ways in which I can combine watercolor painting and ink sketching in another creative way.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

    I use glue sticks and have baby wipes close by to get rid of the stickiness. 😜
