#6 Panda collage

Here is panda number 6! panda_by_giulal_d58fn9y-fullview

Made by another one of the artists on DeviantArt.com.  Thank you very much to Giulal.

If you want to make this you don’t need any coloured paper because it looks like it’s made from cut out pieces of painted papers.  This panda knows what she’s eating.

 

 

How to make a collage panda #5

panda_collage_by_kizzpop_d5rpmoa-fullview

This is the 5th way to make a panda out of things you might have in your house!  You could use magazines, tissue paper, news papers, junk mail, anything you have lying around.

This collage was created by Kizzpop who I discovered on the website “deviantart.com” and I’d like to thank Kizzpop.  I would have made it myself, but I haven’t had time yet, and I didn’t want to keep you all waiting.

This series of blog posts has been inspired by What’s Good for the Goose is not Good for the Panda by Lavender Laine which I loved, and I discovered on Violet’s Vegan Comics.

I would also like to thank Lavender Laine and Violet’s Vegan Comics.

30 ways to make a panda out of stuff you already have in your house part 4

This is my online activity series which was inspired by Violet’s Vegan Comics’ online presentation of Lavender Laine’s story, What’s good for the goose is not good for the Panda.

Tada!  Here is my latest panda:

So what I did was I went through some old magazines I had in my house, and I cut out black pieces for ears and eyes and arms and legs, and white pieces for the body.  And I used a piece of photocopy paper to glue my pieces to.

I found some neat things to make my panda out of, like you can see she’s got a dish of rice for her face, and her body is made from a blouse in a clothing ad.

And then what I did was I made her eyes and nose by cutting out from a photo of a spaniel!  How cute is that?  She did look a little ticked off, so I drew a happy smile on her with pen.

And I have her trying to decide: Do pandas eat almonds?  Do pandas eat lemons?

I was originally inspired by Lavender Laine’s story because the illustrations are so beautiful, and she uses all kinds of things like knitting and towels and things to make her collages.  I found myself totally inspired by her work.  I challenged myself to make a collection of illustrations of pandas out of things you find in your home!

I have found that there are lots of things you could make pandas out of, like duvets and pillows and curtains and dresses and sweatshirts and socks.  Please remember to check with all members of the household before taking scissors to upholstery.  Also consider using a camera and making a larger scale image of a panda without needing scissors at all.  Use white clothing and black clothing to make large pandas on the carpet!

For inspiration see the book: What’s Good for the Goose is not good for the Panda at Violet’s Vegan Comics.

30 ways to make a panda out of stuff you already have in your house – part 1

This is my online activity series which was inspired by Violet’s Veg*n eComics’ online presentation of Lavender Laine’s story, What’s good for the goose is not good for the panda

If you follow those links they will lead you to see for yourself the inspiration for this project.  I have challenged myself to create this series because this story is illustrated with so many different innovative collages, it really opens your eyes to all the ways you can make pictures.

My challenge is to try to make some myself!  I am not artistic, so I will try my best, but do have a look at Laine’s book on Violet’s website, because it is very inspiring and motivating.

I hope you enjoy this series, and Lavender’s book, and I hope you will want to try collage too, because art is fun.

My first panda is made out of newspaper cuttings.  I looked through an old newspaper and cut out the parts which were coloured black, in photos, and I also cut out sky and leaves and trees, from photos.  I didn’t need to find white for this picture, because I worked on a white piece of paper, which is a good idea.

If I wanted, I could keep looking and find lots more green and blue to fill all the white spaces around the panda, but I am pleased with this, so I didn’t.
