Recycled collage project “Blue and gray corners”

My another recycled collage project is completed, this time is was done in blue and gray colors, with some touch of light brown. Wall decor was needed to one of rental room that we manage in Thailand, and the job was to to combine deep blue color of the curtains with others in the room: white walls, dark brown bed, wood color of the flooring,  silver and white bed tables and gray bed cloth.  I had a black frame from some old wall decoration piece, so I decided just to go ahead with the main colors of black, white, gray and blue.

My sincere love for right angles and exact forms together gave me the charge for carving out shapes for the collage, and the  perfectionist’s look directed aspirations for combinations of cut shapes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had to work a little on the final choice, honestly it was not that easy

 

 

 

 

 

 

But finally the peace was founded and my recycled collage starts to get some shapes:

 

 

 

And here is the final look of my new wall decor piece, recycled paper collage “Blue and Gray corners”. Size is 73×73 cm, framed with solid black frame.

Creation process: Collage, original wall art from recycled paper

Today I will show photos from the process of creation a collage, small original wall art made from recycled paper.

The first idea was to re-use paper and carton boxes that appears in our studio every time after a grocery shopping by transforming them  into mixed media art project.

On the other side of a carton box it is quite good and solid surface, suitable for acrylic paint and latex glue.

Using carton size 20×30 cm as a canvas, painted big pieces were cut into small pieces of different geometric shapes and sizes.

Next step was to play with them, combining pieces by different ways, until we get a perfect collage and get tired of endless combinations.

Bonding process took another few hours, but the results were quite satisfying

Another type of collages follows quickly:

 

Framed with white frame collages look stunning and the idea that they were made from recycled paper and carton give it additional value.
