Christmas Art! A Collage to Wish You Happy Holidays.

mixed media, collage
This 6" x 6" wraparound artwork can be wall-hung or placed on a tabletop easel. I used art papers, ink, and several acrylic mediums (in addition to the images, of course).
It was fast and easy to make. If you create something similar, consider a gallery-wrapped canvas. Tear or cut your papers first and arrange them without gluing, to check your composition. Then adhere them, and to the sides,too, and let dry. Add ink, crayon, or pen lines, etc., and let dry again. Finally, varnish the piece to protect it. Send me your own examples of this tute if you like...I would love to see them!

  1. Love the picture! And film and over the lens filters - my father would be very proud. He finally switched to digital a couple of years ago after 40 years with his trusy Nikon film camera. Your collage is beautiful too - very inspiring for the holiday season. Have a great weekend!
