365 Collages | Week 26 – Brown Edition

Collage: Jelly Friend

I'm making 365 collages this year! I have been creating a few more smart journals, in neutral and brown hues, digging through my paper stash for a cohesive look of both cover and inside pages. I will post them to my Etsy Shop when I have photographed them. And while some brown paper and other patterned paper was out on my table (and on my mind) I decided to go with it for this week’s 365 Collage Project! It’s also a bit of a overflow from last week’s foxy edition and its earthy tones, don’t you think?

If you have the time, please let me know in the comments, which of these collages is your favorite – and why! I very much appreciate each and every comment because they motivate me to start thinking about next week’s batch of collages – and keeps me going with this huge project of 365 collages in one single, very long year…

We have passed the half year mark, and I am still going strong. Some days I don’t feel any need to ever do another collage in my life, but then my passion for paper draws me back in… And I keep going.

Thank you for your visit and continued encouragement!

  1. I love the first one, Jelly friend. It feels different from the others, and the paint splatter on the brown paper is really special. And I know how you feel, some days I don’t want to get near my scissors and I think “this is the beggining of the end”. But of course that same night I’m up until 4 am with my hands covered in glue LOL.

  2. I love “another shy friend”, it reminds me on something long forgotten and the colours of “not for reel”, they taste like vanilla and strawberry icecream.

  3. I love Golden Rider! Something about it, I think it’s that little shiny knight in the middle that just drew me in! I applaud you for keeping up with your 365 collages!! That is inspiring, I think I will do it next year! Through ICAD I have learned that I love making collages! Your work is always fun to look at! :)

  4. number two & the last one are my favourites……..i like the colours, patterns & textures.
    the more collage i do the more ideas i get for more, it is quite addictive, but sometimes i have to have a change & do some sewing, crochet or painting in between.
    the time has passed really quickly for me.

  5. My favorite is Stag’s Head. It is bold, and I always like brown and dark blue together. And that jellyfish is magic.

  6. Brown is one of my favourite colours, so I really like this week’s edition of collages! My favourites are “Butterfly Flock”, because I love butterflies and because I like the look of the scribbled lines and torn paper edges, and “Another Shy Friend”, because of the bird that only appears after you look at it for a while, and the nice contrast of the blue colours.

  7. You have some wonderful papers in shades of brown. Jelly Friend is my fave but I also really love that button paper on Golden Rider. Yea, we’re half way there (or maybe not quite for those of us still a few collages behind…). Thank you again for this challenge Hanna, I love it! Thanks for visiting my ICADs last week!

  8. Every week is a new surprise ! My better is “separated from the Flock”, you have the
    talent for choosing title. I like the colors and layout. I like so “Jelly Friend”for the same
    reasons. I would like to try so this sort of challenge but I think I am not so
    disciplined to do that every day.

  9. I love the first ~ Jelly Friend! So graphic.
    Your dedication to this project is inspiring. I’m trying to establish new work habits and it’s not easy!

  10. …you really make me want to start ‘collage-ing’ more
    Really awesome pieces…

    have a nice weekend! :)

  11. amazing project and i’m getting more into collage myself… although it’s a huge challenge for me! it’s like a puzzle, so much time just looking and moving things around… fun fun! I really like the Planning for Winter for some reason… the colors in the top right corner drew me in!
