Fodder Challenge 2023- Lesson 2.

Hi Everyone 

For anyone who missed my post yesterday ( you can find it here)  I am joining in the Fodder Challenge 2023 that's currently taking place, zipping along and drawing ever closer to its final lesson !  Mmmmm and here I am only just sharing the fodder I made in Lesson 2 !  Yes, you've guessed it, I'm running behind and playing catch up ! 

So, given that I'll quit my rambling and move straight on to share some of the papers I made during Barb Smuckers Lesson 2: Collaged Paper Covers. 

To create my papers I enjoyed playing around with a Blue/ Aqua / Mint colour palette using some of my go to paints:  PaperArtsy's Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics along with brushes, sponges, squeegees and a few mark making bits and bobs. 

I also loved not over thinking things (something I do so often , way too often! ) and just going with the flow.  

Here are the papers gathered together..... 

...... and now they are here in either in smaller groupings or individually (according to the style of their patterns).

Some plainly coloured to begin with. 

 Then the patterned . I like the light and dark contrast of these two and am really taken with the mix of solid and broken dots of the one on the right.  

I do like a pin stripe - even one that not so sharp and sleek! 

I used my non dominant hand to make this one and really like how loose and open the pattern is and the sense of movement it has! Such a quick and easy make 

I love how these two turned out, probably my faves of them all.  The colour palette and all those circles = happy me! :)  

Finally , some speckled papers that have some really interesting detail and depth of patterning to them.  

Barb used her papers to collage the cover of a notebook/ journal so that's what I will be doing with these or I might even use them to make some collaged art panels. Once I've given them a 'new life' I'll be sure to share here on my blog and across my social media accounts ( see links below ) 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my fodder from Lesson 2 . I'll be back soon with  more of what I make from the other Lessons in Fodder Challenge 2023. 

Until then
Happy Creative Wishes
