I love the inspiration that new art materials bring. Or, in this case, a new container for the art materials. Maia worked on a collage for well over an hour yesterday afternoon, which is a record for her.

She started off by drawing a girl onto the matboard with oil pastels.

The matboard is great for collages because it is so thick and doesn't buckle under the glue and other materials applied. I picked up our supply of matboard remnants for free from a frame shop. (note: there are actually two pieces of matboard in these photos, one on top of the other, for no real reason.)
