I've been working on some new original pieces over the past few weeks. This is one of my favorites. It's a 12 x 12 mixed media collage on canvas board.
I collaged vintage (111 year old) dictionary pages along with some other papers and vintage photos. I brayered acrylic paints over that. Next came the gorgeous red stencil accents. I used modeling paste that I colored with paint and scraped that over the stencil onto the canvas. This is such a simple way to add great texture to your pieces. The letters are painted grungeboard by Tim Holtz (Ranger)
I've got a few more pieces to share with you later this week. I'm finishing them up now and will post soon!
