Cereal Box Collage

Been playing about with some different colors, darker, more vintage in response to Mary Beth Shaw’s Tic Tac Texture class I took at Art-Is-You.  All that ultramarine blue, teal(my fave),light violet(another different color), yellow oxide, burnt sienna and white.  Using cereal boxes as a substrate (5×7 pieces thereabouts) I experimented with various color combinations and textures using corrugated, magazine collage, some wash tape, a few pieces of gelli printed fabric and painting with my fingers. I enjoyed the results and am looking forward to using other colorways and some stencils and wood icing and continuing the experiment.  In the meantime, these just might have to become oversize post cards with some other images added, or perhaps some mini journal covers, will have to see where to muse takes me during the upcoming storm.  Please do all take care who are in it’s path, I will be keeping you all in my thoughts as we await what will be.

    oh my, those are lovely! This class has clearly pushed you in some new directions, and yet your work is so distinctly your own. I really love the browns/blues.

    Beautiful colors an textures. I love the corrugated in there. I’m trying to get brave enough to use that. Today we stocked up on food, candles and batteries. Lets all hope it’s less than what’s predicted. Xo

    Really cool experiments. Love the textures! (I’m bracing for the storm too. Got my candles and peanut butter at the ready. I actually hope the power goes out. It’s a great excuse to not do anything but collage from dawn to dusk!)

    Corrine, I love the vintage colours and all that texture. So much fun.

    Do keep safe during the storm. xx

    Chunky textures and layered paint, all things I love. You did a great job on these. Even though some of the colors are more subdued I see your brights peeking through in a wonderful way.
    Be safe, I’ll be thinking of you while we’re in the storm. Hope it doesn’t make it up to you.

    These are quite wonderful, I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

    Please do check in soon as you can, let us know you are okay after Sandy moves through.
    The name Sandy sounds so benign, it can’t be the Frankenstorm can it? Let us hope not.

    Fabulous mixtures of texture & color, mmm.

    Batten down those hatches, now!

    What texture- what colors! I love these! Can’t wait to see what you do with the wood icing and stencils! Hope the storm passes by quickly!

    These are even cooler when you see them live. Love the collages, Corrine. Thanks for a fun day in sparkly land.

  15. Kris October 29, 2012 at 1:00 pm #

    You mix the colors of water and earth so beautifully.
    I think I need a lesson in texture from you. Awesomeness!

  16. Kat October 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

    I love these colors and textures Corrine, delightful pieces, hope you are all keeping safe throughout those terrible storms, thinking of you! xx

    Wow, such beautiful colour and texture, very autumnal! if a word. 🙂

  18. Bleubeard and Elizabeth October 29, 2012 at 5:25 pm #

    I was very worried about you this morning. I was afraid you might be in the path of the storm. I love your colors and all that texture you get when you play. It’s addictive and I want to join you!!

  19. Dianne October 29, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    your collages are gorgeous and just show that humble materials can create beautiful art! wonderful color and texture…

    OMG – these are great! This experimenting is certainly a fun path and I’m loving what you’re coming up with. I’ve been thinking about all my east coast buddies and certainly hope you all ride out the storm with minimal problems. If you lose power, what will your art look like created by candle light? 🙂

    I’ve tried having exposed corrugated show in my work before but have trouble getting it exposed. Do you have a trick to getting off that top layer of paper?

    oh my—these are so fab! And, wow, it HAS been a while since I visited…the new website looks amazing. You have been a busy girl!

    Yippeee! Makes me happy to see them…and want to get out my scrap cardboard!
