Two New Collages

006 Formfit

006 Formfit

Knowing myself, I need to move along a bit quicker with this project. I have recently read that one of the signs of a creative person is a short attention span. Well, okay I’ll admit it!!! I get bored very easily!!! I’m constantly looking ahead to see what’s next!!! And I am very anxious to show you all of the collages that are finished. So I will be speeding up the process and posting multiples for a while.

Here is collage 006 Formfit. It is 5″ x 7″ on Bristol board and includes a vintage French magazine advertisement, dress pattern tissue, printed napkin, vintage typed page, painted newspaper, and stamped silk tissue, and it has a nice golden colored tone done with Caran d’Ache. This collage is mounted and matted with a black colored mat to fit an 8.5 x 11 frame (frame not included).

004 Maine Rails

004 Maine Rails

Today’s collage is actually one of the first in this series, but it wasn’t completed until it became Number 4. It is named Maine Rails, for the inclusion of a page about the Maine rail line from a vintage railroad catalog. I’ll be going to Maine in a few weeks for an encaustic retreat, so Maine is on my mind.

This 4.5″ x 6.6″ collage was originally done in a notebook, torn out from the book and mounted on Bristol board. It includes vintage children’s book page, Stencil Girl stenciling, rice paper, printed painted newspaper, a vintage handwritten scrap and transparent papers. I just love creating collage from the scraps on my work table!!!

004 Maine Rails is mounted on Bristol board and matted with a black colored mat, ready to drop into an 8.5″ x 11″ frame (frame not included).

Here is Number 2 in the Off the Cuff collage series. I absolutely love the spiral symbol and include it in a lot of my art work, mostly in my art journals. The one included in this collage was printed on silk tissue with one of my hand made stamps. And I just love silk tissue to add transparent layers to my collage!!!

002 Fabulous Fabian is 5″ x 7″ and includes a page from a 1970’s Teen World Magazine, lace paper, printed papers, and repurposed painted and printed newspapers. It is mounted and matted with a cream colored mat to fit an 8.5″ x 11″ frame (frame not included).

Happy Collaging!!!
