Collage Obsession Challenge – Time Mixed Media

After the chaos that was our vacation I thought I should take a few minutes for some creative time.  I headed over to the Collage Obsession site to see what the challenge was for the week to get a little inspiration.  So, off I went to create a Time Mixed Media piece.  I knew I wanted to start with these vintage Pennsylvania Railway cards I got off of E-bay.  Aren’t they cool?

I prepared a few canvases at once, which is a great time saving idea and reduces waste of supplies.  I layered the cards, some vintage book pages and sheet music and then covered them with a fluid acrylic in Titan Buff.  It is close to the colour of the paper and I just applied it with my finger so as not to cover up too much of the papers.  I really wanted them to show through.

 This was my “Time” piece.  Elephants playing on top of a clock, seems possible doesn’t it? haha.  I incorporated the elephants as our youngest Amelia seems a little obsessed with them lately.

I added this oh so true quote on it.

While I was in the groove, I thought I would create a couple extra finished pieces with the backgrounds I had done.  Here is the proud rooster strutting his stuff enjoying his journey high atop this bike he found in the farm yard.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I would incorporate hearts into this one.  Isn’t she a little cutey?

I am loving the monochromatic look of these with just little pops of colour.  I think I shall do a few more.
