My First Collage!

Talk about some major procrastination!!  I have been preparing to make a collage for a couple months.  I have watched dozens of tutorials, bought tons of paint, stamps, inks, templates, gel medium, modeling paste, papers, brushes, brayers, stamp carving tools, rub-ons, pens, watercolor pencils, pastel crayons, etc, etc.  I have it all. 

I placed a little table and chair in my bedroom with all of my supplies in cute baskets and bins.  Let me tell you - I prepared for this.  About 2 weeks ago, I finally sat down, dipped my brush in some paint and put it on the canvas.  I added a couple different colors, brushed them around, then decided I better take a break and let it dry - oops, I had forgotten to get a heat tool - better go to Michaels.

After passing by my dry, painted canvas a million times, TODAY, I sat down again, ripped up paper, inked up stamps, scooped out some modelling paste, and this is what I made...

Upside down, but who would know?

Now. the funny thing is that this picture is upside down.  For the life of me, I can't figure out how to flip it over.  It's saved in my computer right-side-up.  I've even tried saving it upside-down, then uploading it to the blog and it still comes out like this.  So just flip your laptop.

I'm pleased with the way it turned out for a first try.  I can't wait to start another one.  But, I'm a procrastinator, so it might be a few days.
