7.5 x 7.5

I took a box of collage compost with me to use while on vacation at the beach, not realizing how appealing making a simple collage would be to my grandchildren. I took only enough supports for my own work but of course I soon realized that it was more important that I share with these budding artists.

The first girl to have a go was my 8 year old granddaughter who created a masterpiece right off the bat. Granted I kept control of the glue spreader (I had YES! paste with me and a broad plastic palette knife) so the work was neater than she normally produces but it was amazing. See for yourself...

Soon my other granddaughter joined the fun and made this

And by week's end we had a gallery lining two windowsills...

And the rest are mine.

  2. What a great name "Collage Compost" and what beautiful papers! I painted paper myself today. Did I tell you that I am hooked on fluid acrylics? How's things?


I appreciate comments and questions.
