The September issue of Unruly Paper Arts focuses on collage.  We have loads of great articles up already and more are scheduled throughout the month.

This is part of a Reader Art Quest challenge, featuring a 4″X4″ collage format.  That's a very small space!  I made my collage with scraps of patterned paper and a map, alpha stickers, a magazine clipping, fibers, inks, stamps, stencil, flower, brad, and a diecut Sizzix heart.

Hope you'll come over to UPA and join us this month!  There are loads of ideas waiting…

Marjie

    Lush, that is the word that came to mind as I first viewed this.

    Wow! That is a cool collage piece! Love that fact that it is only 4×4. There is a lot of great stuff packed into a small space! <3 Candy

    That IS a small space, but you used it to it’s best advantage with all those gorgeous colors and textures! This is going to be a great Reader’s Art Quest.
    And thank you for your comment on my column at Unruly Paper Arts, Marjie, I appreciate it!
    :)

    A fabulous collage, great colors and elements.



  22. Marjie Kemper on September 9, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Correction: @ Linda – Sorry, Linda – the one on the left is indeed Tim’s honeycomb stamp. The Rubbernecker chickenwire is a fabulous stamp, but much larger and out of proportion for this piece.



  23. Alison on September 9, 2012 at 11:21 am

    A very cool collage Marjie! Love it! x



  24. Alie Hoogenboezem-de Vries on September 9, 2012 at 10:36 am

    So much to see and enjoy Marjie…again you’ve made a great creation!
    greetings, Alie :-)



  25. Marjie Kemper on September 9, 2012 at 10:14 am

    Thanks, ladies! @ Linda – the honeycomb on the right is a Crafters Workshop stencil and the one on the left is a stamp by Rubbernecker. Tim Holtz has a great honeycomb stamp, too.



  26. Anita Houston on September 9, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Love this Marjie…I’ve been stumped on the 4×4 idea, so seeing yours give me inspiration! I love the green and that image is fantastic!



  27. Anne R on September 9, 2012 at 10:05 am

    Hi Marjie, given the small space that you had to work in, you have got an amazing amount of things on it. Love the colour, the texture you created and that gorgeous face at the top. Small but perfectly formed as they say………Crafty hugs, Anne x



  28. Linda on September 9, 2012 at 9:57 am

    What an awesome collage!! I love all the textures and colors!! Is the honeycomb a stamp or a stencil?? can you plz tell me where you got it?? thnx! I actually have a journal that is just a bit smaller than 4×4! I love working small!



  29. Willy on September 9, 2012 at 9:56 am

    Fabulous collage in great colours, Marjie!



  30. butterfly on September 9, 2012 at 9:33 am
