Meet Tip Toe Teddy!

Happy Friday everyone!

R-Chee & I had so much FUN making a new collage this past weekend that we made another one to share with you!

After our new friend appeared before our eyes & we heard him whisper his name to us!

"Tip Toe Teddy"

Wax Crayons, Ink & Collage on paper

Melissa Langer ~ 2015

He was so FUN & Easy to make!

To create him...
I lightly painted a coat of gesso on a junk mail postcard mailer and let some of the background still show through.

After the gesso dried, I painted a light wash of watercolor over the gesso to add some color and let it pool to form water stained blobs to find a character in to bring out.

After turning the page this way and that to create some interesting shapes, I let it dry and pulled out my pencil and found a little dog to color in!

I pulled out my Neocolor 1 & 2 Wax crayons and started coloring him in.

He started to come to life and I finished his features with a bit of outlining with a black ink permanent marker.

The final step was to get out my old magazines and paste and cut out letters to form a message he was whispering from his heart to me...

"Tip Toe"

Tip Toe Teddy likes to Tip Toe everywhere he goes!

It is FUN to Tip Toe through the Tulips!

Spring is coming!

We can all feel, smell, hear and see it popping up all around us!

Let's go play in the sunshine this weekend!

How will you celebrate the Spring weather?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about it!

Melissa & R-Chee
