Week Nine: Collage something you recycled

Look closely - can you spot it?

This challenge should be called "recycle something you can reach without getting up".

I literally bent over, looked into my studio garbage can and saw an M&Ms bag sitting right on top. I smiled and thought, "perfect!"

I cut out the colorful candy portion of the packaging.

I grabbed a yellow and an orange fluid acrylic and applied them rather haphazardly using my hotel room key card technique.

I glued on the wrapper and book paper with a Uhu glue stick. I added pink and white fluid acrylics over the page again very randomly.

I added black skinny washi tape and daubed on pink acrylic through a flower stencil.

I decided I wanted a touch of green on the page as well. I doodled around the flowers in black pen and then added lots of white dots with a Sharpie paint pen.  I added a word and called it done.
