Have you heard yet about our freeART show in NYC? Here is the original post about making a 6" x 6" collage, sending it in to us here at Cloth Paper Scissors headquarters, and being part of our NYC show.
We are getting an amazing response from our community members, members, and Facebook friends. There are just a few days left to get it in to us by our deadline. If you’re feeling brave, you can send it in as late as Friday and if it makes it in time, we’ll bring it along!
Of course, I wanted to join in the fun, so this is what I whipped up this morning before work! I used bits and pieces of old gelatin prints and background, collage leftovers and found papers to create these collages. It only took me about 20 minutes once I had my little pile in front of me. (I like to keep little bits like these in a special place in my studio.)
I don’t normally pull out my sewing machine for little collages like this but these two pieces on the right looked like they would benefit from a little stitch doodling. Simple, straight lines mixed with some of the “fancier” stitches on my machine, made a nice mix.
These pieces on the left are bits and pieces from some gelatin printing sessions I did before. What do you have in your studio or work space that you could turn into a little piece of art?
Remember to check in to facebook or follow us @CPSmagazine #freeART on twitter to find out the exact location and time! (Hint, be ready for the 26th or 27th. Probably near Time Square!)
Got a location suggestion! Send it our way and we’ll put it on our list!
