Mixed Media Monday: Digital Collage

Craft Attitude pro Anne Grbic tells us how she made this cool, modern collage:

I created my own digital collage, printed it on Craft Attitude, then glued it and wrapped it around the wood wall panel to make this décor piece. 





I layered a separate printed piano piece on the bottom right. I applied Liquitex gloss varnish over the whole thing, then embellished with alcohol inks and. I wrapped the ribbon around for an interesting effect – the black and white representing piano keys. I then glued down a piece of cardstock on the back.

Materials Used:

Start with your own digital collage or favorite image sized to 8-by-8 inches. Go here for a great tutorial from Digital Arts on how to create your own collage.

  • Wood wall panel for base.
  • Craft Attitude to print image.
  • PVA glue stick to wrap and glue print to wood.
  • Liquitex gloss varnish to give a sheen to surface.
  • Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol inks to dab some colors over the surface. Craft Attitude is compatible with stamps and inks to embellish the surface.
  • Ribbon, if desired
  • Paper back, if desired.

We're thrilled to see Craft Attitude film hard at work for mixed-media artist Barbara Bryant Hart at her gallery, Work of Hart Studio and Gallery in Northeastern Georgia. Within the acrylic collage artwork, Barbara used the Craft Attitude film for the photo images. Take a closer look at "Jim's Grill" below.

"I was thrilled to find Craft Attitude," Barbara told us. "I've never ever had success with transfers, and I'm not about to spend time scratching off paper or using gummy messy products. I have found that you can paint in acrylics right over the adhered transfer, and it is beautiful. The layering possibilities are endless. Needless to say, I'm sold!"

Keep up the beautiful work, Barbara!
