though the photo was done quite some time ago and the collage was handed on a wall for almost a year. Final piece as a wall decoration in lovely studio apartment with very nice sea view, dark blue curtains and solid wood flooring and grey/black/white colours in furniture items.
Workshop “Recycled collage project” aimed to attract attention to the quantity of paper that we use every day and the ways how to reuse or recycle it.
Used boxes, paper bags, A4 office paper etc we will transform on our workshop into the art and decoration item. We will paint, splash, cut, tear off, glue and do a lot of fun activities with the paper. This workshop will also help to see your creativity at work, as there will be not prepared tasks, just lots of materials and techniques to try and see.
Paper is very multi-faced material to work with, it can be soft, hard, smooth, rough and so on. With the help of water (which is the solvent for both paint and glue) it can be transformed into different shapes and forms.
All materials will be provided, none of the experience or knowledge is needed.
Having this idea for a quite some time. Paper appliqué on a hardboard. 60×40 cm
After my exercise with liquid acrylic technique I have lots of paint leftovers. So I used it on a simple white paper and mixed it all into one collage. Will do more, quite fascinating experience and very meditating process.
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.
