How I went about this collage.


OK Neda you asked for it,here is how I did this collage,my dear! I came back from a trip to Ocean City Maryland. The land of the kazillion shops on the boardwalk. I grabbed a bunch of brochures when leaving, of places around the town. The next day I sat down to play,as I cut out the colorful ads. I decided on the size and placed down a piece of star covered paper I had saved. Then I made a centered strip of boardwalk out of a cut brown piece of paper. I added a piece of torn art paper with flecks in it, to mimic sand and still show reflection of the stars in the ocean. Then I had fun placing all the colorful shops and restaurant words trying to give a tight ocean city effect as if seen from the ocean. This was one of the most fun pieces of collage I ever did. Kind of a surreal Boardwalk at night.
