Collage Tutorial 14. Maps

IMG_20131124_122254s

I loved making this collage using my collections of found papers and fabric.

IMG_20131124_122447s

I started off with an old school exercise book cover from the 1930’s. It was full of hand drawn maps. I added stitching to the map and some found vintage graph papers, aged canvas and a did a little hand drawing on tissue

IMG_20131124_122453s

The paper with one of the maps of Queensland Australia was very delicate, so I glued it down  very carefully with archival gel medium. It’s a bit wrinkled but I don’t mind.

I added some fabric scrap from a vintage tablecloth depicting Australian wildflowers

Finally, I created little drawings all over the entire collage with pencils and ink pens

This collage links to my interest in the world of vintage advertising, Pop Art and Andy Warhol

Once again I worked in layers

Starting with a base layer of distress inks, paint swatch stickers and hand painted papers, I then added vinyl tape and letters
