Ta-Da! Tuesday: Jumping Right In

I have been a fan of mixed media collage for quite some time.  In recent months, I’ve been dabbling with the idea of making my own.  I did the typical Violet thing that I do whenever I take on a new project:  I checked out countless books on the subject.

The books sat on my shelves for awhile, through numerous renewals.  I collected ephemera to use on it, started following bloggers who do mixed media, pinned how-to links on Pinterest.

Yet something kept holding me back.  I wanted to be completely prepared, but in my time spent preparing, I never actually did anything.

Until today.  I don’t know what it was in me that finally spurred me to just jump right in and do it, but I’m so glad I did.  Except for the fact that this may get addicting.  I already have ideas for collage postcards to send my friends.

These are the first two that I did:


(clear with glare)


(blurry without glare)


(closeup of mouth text)



(closeup of “bindhi” text)

The first one I was planning on doing a monochromatic collage, the color being green.  I started with the “DOG” lettering, but found other cutouts that related to it, and the collage sorta made itself.  I actually really love the way it turned out!

The second one turned out to be the monochromatic collage I wanted (purple).  I’m going to turn it into a postcard to send to a friend who loves purple as much as I do.  🙂

My third one is halfway done, and I’m excited to do much much more!

To Finally Doing Something You’ve Really Been Wanting to Do!!!
