it's been quite awhile since I've done an art project with em jay. we finally spent some artsy time together.

  • thin cardboard (I used a cereal box)
  • aluminum foil
  • tape
  • various collage items (tissue paper, sequins, yarn, string, ribbon, glitter, etc.)
  • elmer's glue
  • water
  • paintbrush
prepare/gather collage materials.  fold foil over thin cardboard (for a sturdier surface) and tape down.  mix elmer's glue with water to create a very thin consistency.  paint thinned glue onto the foil surface.  add tissue paper pieces.  paint more glue.  add more tissue.  keep adding glue over each layer.  add sequins, ribbon, and other items.  after a final coat of glue.  finish with glitter.
