Collage Tutorial 10. Torn Posters and Painted Papers.

IMG_20131119_143700s

I used many layers of a poster I found on the ground in Paris with handmade painted papers and acrylic gel. I sanded in between leaving torn paper and scratches in areas. My interest in this piece is the quality of the surface. During the process I made marks with permanent pens and acrylic paints.  Gluing on torn papers and tearing off with sanding.

Bonus Collage. Ugly Hair. 30 Days of Collage.

I had so much fun making these collages!

This challenge has been more liberating in more ways than one. Only using glue, scissors and magazine cut outs, I created a series of collages in ’60s style and finally got the chance to use some of my vintage magazines for art.

Collage Tutorial 7. On a Prayer. Vintage Photos. Postcards..

IMG_20131114_133521

A new collage using vintage postcards and photos. I used a beautiful Japanese prayer card a square of gold cardboard from a box of French chocolates, a vintage photograph of Mt. Fuji and orangy twine with a tiny cut- out from a vintage postcard. Handwritten words on Japanese paper.

A Japanese friend of mine translated the prayer card for me.

It’s an ancient prayer for a well balanced, happy life.

3. Keep smiling

4. Dress up Appropriately
