From A Mess to A Masterpiece

I have been playing with a technique I learned at the Kentuckiana Calligraphy Guild meeting. We do so much more than calligraphy or I could not be a member! It’s a collage technique.

 

It is an exercise to loosen up your creativity. You use up all your scraps.

It starts out looking like a mess really.

But from this mess came so many mini masterpieces. I cut it up into ATCs. The pictures don’t do them justice as the metallic paint just does not photograph in all its glory.

Never give up…if it’s a mess you just might be able to turn it into mini masterpieces.

@Roberta Sharpe Thanks Roberta. It is a good way to savage a project or set out to create a unique background that you would never have achieved any other way.
