Reindeer Games ~ Come & Play With Me!

Happy Monday everyone!

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

After our new friend appeared before our eyes & we heard him call out to us...

"Come & Play with Me"

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 calling out loud and clear!

"Come & Play with Me!"

What a smart message!

We are all here to play & have FUN!

How will you play today?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about it!

Melissa & R-Chee
