Happy Monday everyone!
R-Chee & I had so much FUN making a new collage today!
After our new friend appeared before our eyes we heard him bark out a message that we had to collage!
"Simply Bark Out Love"
Wax Crayons, Ink & Collage on paper
Melissa Langer ~ 2015
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!
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 loudly barking from his heart to me...
"Simply Bark Out LOVE"
That was FUN!
What FUN things are you doing this week?
Please leave me a note and let me know!
R-Chee & I would love to hear all about them!
