This week I am finally linking up to Artsyvilles Glue it Tuesday!
I have been meaning to do so for ages, after all I do go through buckets of modpodge glue in all it's varieties. Matte, gloss, sparkle, in fact the only variety I haven't tried is the glow in the dark variety, but there is time yet!
Many people seem a bit confused about which glue to use for collage. The most important thing to consider is using a glue that is acid free if you want your work to remain colour stable and not fall to pieces after a few years. Acid free glues usually state the fact on the label and most also act as a sealant encasing more unstable papers like newsprint and found papers and protecting them from deterioration. Modpodge is my favourite although it is a little thin for some more delicate papers. I also use golden gel medium which is harder to get in the UK and more recently a great modpodge like glue called Decoupatch, made especially for decoupage and collage.
It started off as a more serious 'Hare and the Horsetail'
I didn't like the hare much at this point, and thought she was missing something....
Clothes!!! That is what she needed! And a shopping bag!!
Much better! I know what you're thinking...
I need more ventilation when working with Modpodge, the fumes had gone to my head!
well I think she looks far better in her little checked dress.
The shopping bag was made from a piece of antique crochet table mat and the trees were cut from felt circles.
