Collage #35 - First Quick Sketch Collage of 2015

I really enjoyed making Quick Sketch Collages in 2014. I was inspired to continue working on this project for 2015 because I need to work on adding layers of texture and color to my collages. Also, I'm having fun making and using bleeding tissue paper.

The collages will be made on a more serendipitous matter. When I am inspired...when I am creatively block...when I need a break from a deadline driven project.

Here is Collage #35 - the first quick sketch collage of 2015 along with the steps taken along the way.

I decided to start the collage by adding a full sheet of unmarked bleeding tissue paper. I thought it would be a good ground for the collage.

I played around with different pieces of marked bleeding tissue paper.

I liked how some pieces overlapped and some pieces left space between each other. A slight hint of the green tissue paper underneath added another design element.

I cautiously added the uneven yellow circles. 

Normally, I like simple, uncluttered artwork. This year I want to push myself to add layers of texture and color while keeping my style. As with the collages from 2014, not all of the collages will be successful. I will learn from every collage - successful or not. 


  1. I'm in love with this layered combination of colors and the circles make the entire collage dance.

    1. Thank you, Linda. I'm continuously enjoying the collage process.
