Homelife Sunday No. 6 - Collage Flower with Artist Julie Forrester

We are going to have fun tearing up paper and reassembling it into a collage - I made a flower but you might have other ideas.

You can use your homemade inks from vegetable matter that you made last week, or make some more - boil them up in some water - beware of powerful smells! texture has also changed in an interesting way - keep in the fridge and use quickly!

Gather together interesting printed materials from your recycling bin choose nice colours and patterns you can use any kind of paper and light card together - I used tea packets and some flyers I had picked up for exactly this purpose - it’s funny to see what they are now!
