From the Composition Book

Nothing like a little artsy play with pieces of paper and a bit of paint and that's exactly what my Composition Book is all about. It's a book for small collage compositions. They are easy and they are colourful and they are fun and I feel they help strengthen my compostion muscles. Don't ask me where those muscles are located, I just know they are good and strong because of stuff like this:

It's fun to see how far one can take a simple idea as this. I'm thinking up more variations in backgrounds, shapes, colours etc. It's like a series within a book and I like how that is turning out.

I'm also thinking about maybe doing a tutorial on these, but I wonder if they are even worthy of one. What I mean is, these things are so simple I think you can see how they work just by looking at them. So my question to you: would you be interested in a tutorial on these kinds of collage compositions or do you think it's not necessary? Let me know!

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy Wednesday.


  1. I was thinking way before I read the entire post, that a tutorial would be such a great idea. It looks so different that I can't tell what kind of paint (watercolors or acrylics) were used for the background and are the various objects made of paper or ribbon? Yep, I feel it would be a great project for a tutorial.
    These are outstanding pages just in color.

    1. Thank you Barb and I will get to working on it.

  2. yes, yes, yes, including important specifics like if you have to let a layer dry first - really eager to see tutorials on these!

    1. Great, next time I make some I'll be sure to take some pictures of the whole process and fill you in on the details.
