I'm attempting one of these for my boyfriends mother in Italy
"Bits and Pieces Collage your own interpretations
We start with a 9" x 12" canvas, either raised and stretched or panel style...it's your choice . Then divide the canvas into a grid of 12, three inch squares. That is your field of play...after that the idea is to use any bits and pieces of pretty little things, ie...ribbon, papers, photos, labels, trinkets, buttons, fabric, ric rac, lace, cupcake toppers, matchsticks, toothpicks... whatever! Use paint maybe for the base color of your canvas... Go with a tight color palette or use every color you got!
