Checking in with my collages for the week - these are #22-28 - hopefully I'll be totally caught up by next weekend.
#22 Voices Spelled (oh yeah, decided to try naming my pieces...we'll see how long that lasts)
This was made on a piece of chipboard from a file folder box - it's perfect....easy to cut, strong enough to support paint or glues, neutral color background. I want more of these boxes!
#23 Mayan Cookies
Black gesso on my chipboard back, a couple of pieces of wood veneer, tiger ribbon and 'cookies' cut from a cookie wrapper.
I pulled papers from here and there in my art room, and when it was done, I wasn't lovin' it. Started turning it upside down, horizontally, etc and decided I liked this orientation best.
#25 Gifted Circles
Circles cut from all the gorgeous papers I received in the MMSA swap
over a black gesso base.
#26 Get Wild
Another black background - I love the drama it gives. Although the scan doesn't show it, most of these papers are reflective or glittery; the text is from ephemera Jo sent me
#27 Pretty in Pink
Pulled out my pink grab bag of bits and had fun making this one. My homage to Hanna
, who started this whole journey and who loves pink.
#28 In the Woods
Again on my file folder chipboard, 3 layered wood veneers, drywall tape, cupboard shelf liner and a bit of patterned tissue paper. I'm wondering if the black circle is too high contrast for all the neutrals?
So there ya go. I have several that I really like this week....I feel like I'm settling in and finding my voice (a bit.....).
The other project I'm falling woefully behind in is my ALAW
. I think I've finally decided on both the display format and my lettering so I might actually get busy on it this week.
