It is great fun to do these-messy though :-))
You can collect all kinds of things to put in your collage-bits of lace, shells, bark, paper, buttons. It is up to your imagination. The material will adhere to the canvas as you use a gel medium to affix it.
Here you see maples, birch, oak seed, ferns and many more.
I have a CD that is a Botanic Collage Workshop available on my Etsy shop. I have just reduced the price. It would be a great Christmas gift.
There are step by step photo directions as well as written directions. MAKE YOUR OWN !! I would love to see your results.
This is the same procedure that I used to make the mushroom collage in an earlier post on my blog.
The Lavande dans le jardin collage is also for sale there.

It would be nice to see you at any of those places ;-))
