Summer Fun # 66: Eric Carle-style Collage Art

Remember the marbled paper we made?
We have been fun using it to decorate journals and the like, but we decided we wanted to use some to make some art work. We picked up an Eric Carle book, The Grouchy Ladybug, in order to look at his unique collage style.
 Then the cutting...
and gluing began.

Here are their results!
The marbled paper became maps of enchanted lands, giraffes munching on lunch, lobsters, fire breathing dragons, birds tucked in the holes of trees, lions stretching in the Savannah sun...
Alex's lobster
almost as if by magic.


  1. These are so awesome. We have always loved Eric Carle. Makes me wish Kei was 5 again. :/

  2. I love it! The giraffe is so incredibly cute. I don't know how well I'd do because I'm horrible at things that require multiple steps with drying time....


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
