November already......yes I have been absent way too long but am happy to be back and filled with gratitude. As always I am pressed for time but here are a few looks at some collage work I'm doing for a class with Stephanie Levy, 30 Days of Collage. Going way out of my comfort zone but after a lot of painting in September I was burned out. Started tearing, cutting, ripping, gluing, anything to stay creative so when the Universe sent me this opportunity the timing was just right. The pictures are a little blurry due to some scanner difficulties but if I wait 'till everything is perfect..... well, you know, it never is. So embracing imperfection.....
First assignment-Black and White Collage
This one I decided to do on a black background-an old book cover
|warm color collage with some painted papers|
|cool color collage|
then on to cool colors-we started the class with painting our own papers with different techniques and then used them in these collages:
and then mixing cool with a touch of warm.
And finally using textiles-really outside the box for me but interesting. Will definitely consider doing this again.
