Fun with Scanned Paper Collage

I'm reading and working through the exercises in Randel Plowman's Collage Worrkbook:

It's a wonderful book that explains collage materials and techniques, and provides 50 collage project prompts to get your motor running.  I played with #32, Scanned Collage.  I randomly put pictures (and items) on a copier machine, pressed the copy button, and voila', my resukts!  Each collage is 4"x4", mounted on a manilla file folder, which is all I had available when I made them.  Definitely a fun exercise.  I'd definitely make more if I had more time!

Work - A Study in Office Supplies

So I've been spending my lunch hour at work immersed in making a couple of mini 4"x4" collages.  Here's how they've come along so far.

I still have to add some paint and gesso but what a fun way to spend my lunch hour.  Sure beats eating things I'm best not eating!  I'll show you the final product soon!
