Activity 2: Envelope  Paper Art

YOU WILL NEED: Paper, scissors, glue. Vanessa has used the patterned paper that you can find on the inside of some envelopes.

I have created a simple new activity which can be made more difficult (examples of this are on the Pinterest page, Creative Home Crafting Steps Board).

 

The materials we are using for this activity are the inside of envelopes, in specific: bill envelopes. We are creating a collage of blue/ black patterned paper. Now all you need is a pair of scissors, glue and a blank piece of paper.

 

Please notice of the photos that I used too much glue on one of the paper pieces - try not to do this as it curls up the paper.

Have fun trying out different shapes, papers, shades and play around in the paper.

 

It is similar to the collage we made at the beginning of the year only now you are working with a select few colours, which can really add to the effects!
