Snake Plant Collage

I really enjoyed doing the collage for workshop project. I love collages but never really thought of it as a media that I could connect to. During the challenge I met a great collage artist Hannah Klaus Hunter and was so inspired by her work I felt I had to give it a try. I don't have collections of fabrics, papers and other stuff, just plain newspint,so off I go. I  thought that the snake plant would be a good subject because of its simple shapes.This was done directly on the grey cardboard. I taped all the edges because the cardboard tends to fray. Background oils , leaves and planter newsprint  with caran d'ache crayon and some oil pastel drawings.
