If you ever stop by my Facebook or Instagram feed, you'll have noticed that I've been enjoying learning, experimenting and playing with collage after recently adding a bonus project to my online class, Fragments Of Joy

There are just so many ways to use collage in artwork and there are pretty much no rules - this is good news to me and to you!

What You Will Learn:

In this free tutorial, I show you how to integrate photographic imagery (see reference photo  below) along with a hand-drawn expressive portrait.  I also incorporate a pressed oak leaf, grasses, lace etc - please scroll down the page to see the supplies I used.

Along the way, you'll be there as I encounter 'issues' and see how I overcome them.

You'll gain some understanding for my choices of items to add from a compositional point of view and how it evolves into a final piece of artwork.
