Monochrome Collage - North American Indian Style

Well at last I have finished my collage.
Well actually I slipped with the craft knife and now I have 2 collages!

I chose this colour as the stone Turquoise is used a lot in North American Indian jewellery.

It is hard to see but the background is coloured with inks and stamped. The background is also brushed with Pearl Ex powders hence the shine.

Different papers were pasted over the background and then stamped with pictures of cave art.

I actually (health issues aside) found this a real challenge. I love this colour but the temptation to add pink and purple was very hard to fight.

Monochrome collage

For the latest challenge I've done a digital collage. Concentrating on texture and patterns - bricks, wood, trellis, plants - I layered and altered various photos of my yard (my theme). I was a little unsure as to whether a digital work would be acceptable but it's a media that I've been experimenting with more recently, and one I feel happy with. Plus there are parts of this that just wouldn't work with a conventional 'paper' approach.

North American Indian ATC's

These are my ATC's based on North American Indian inspiration.

I chose the colours to represent a desert sunset and painted with watercolours on watercolour paper.
I stamped the backgrounds using the stamps I made for an earlier challenge.

The first shows an Anasazi pot, the second an Indian in all his glory. The third is a little big for an ATC I know but I wanted to include the concho I made for the last challenge.

Hugs, Alis.

Challenge 6 (Linda)

My ATCs for challenge 6, based on my theme of my backyard. All are digitally enhanced photos that I took especially for this challenge, printed, mounted on card and embellished. An enjoyable project - it's been a while since I made ATCs, had almost forgotten how much fun they are!!!
