Paint + Collage Process-Let's Paint Friday

Here's a quick peek at how to do collage artwork like the Pig pictured above. This acrylic mixed media piece was done by one of my adult students, Dianna Huchingson, who is very talented, much more so than she gives herself credit. She did this piece in about 2 hours and used scrapbook paper, gloss medium, acrylic paint on a canvas panel.

She started out using a pig picture similar to this one as her reference/inspiration.

First she sketched out her basic shape, and then using gloss medium, she started glueing her torn papers into place.

Then using acrylic paint mixed with gloss medium, she filled in the white space.

A few more shadows and touches and she ended up with this cute little guy!


  1. I ADORE this pig Stacy! Kudos to Dianna! Thanks for showing the step by step process. Love the little bits of collage materials showing throughout the piece. Have to pin this one. I'll give credit. :)

  2. These are great! I love the collage and painting! Another great one!

  3. I love this! I just saw this on Pinterest and would like to try something like this. Thank you so much for sharing it!


I get so excited when I receive a comment and I do read each and everyone of them! I wish I had time to respond to each one personally. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will be back soon!
