This month we are challenging you to make a collage! Interpret ‘collage’ as you see fit… Simply put, collage refers to an assemblage of parts such as paper or other materials that are glued or applied to a substrate (canvas, paper, wood etc.) I’ve made you a short 1:25 minute timelapse video to show you how I used my mixed media painted flowers to create my collage piece. I’ve listed the supplies at the end of the video. You can make your own flowers by visiting the FREEBIES page for the download. I hope you enjoy the video! and here are some beautiful samples for you from our lovely, creative ACN team…!
