Photo Collage - series 1

I am having lots of fun with this lesson from Hilary!  We are using transfer paper or printing out photo's to create collages.  We start with a photo then add to the photo using pencils...and before I show my first pencil collage, look what I bought!  Woo hoo!!!  These are Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and I love the colors.  I only had a set of 12, which didn't give me many choices.   Now I have lots of choices!!! These are perfect!

This was the photo I decided to work with first!

Addition of colored pencils

My next photo

I'm still adding some green to this one...and need to take a picture in better light.

This is a stand in our dining room.  My daughter gave me the flowers, I believe, for mother's day and the white bird was made by our friend in Florida.

Again, the colors don't look quite right so I may take these pictures over again.

This was my challenge piece for sure!  Yikes!

I still have some work to do on this one!

I put these on pages in my accordan journal.  The original pictures are 4"x6" so they fit on the pages just right and still allow me to expand as much as I dare!   What's up next!  Can't wait!


  1. What a stunning book you'll have! You chose really great images and colors.

  2. Ooh! Yummy pencils! I have a big box of Derwent watercolor pencils and I love them too!

  3. That box of pencils reminds me of getting a new large crayon box at the beginning of school. Yummy!

  4. Such a clever approach, the total opposite of the cropping you’ve been doing… darn creative and inspirational!


Had to put Word Verification back in! Getting strange messages!!!
