This is a collage I made in my Strathmore WC journal. I chose 3 main elements, a person place and a thing, I like to think that the lady is looking down that long railroad track to her future, to the unknown. The crow is their as her guide, to help her make that first step, to know she is not alone.
This was a little experiment with some new tape I bought recently. After I laid down the greeting card I covered in clear gesso. It gives you a gritty service that you can write on and it takes charcoal really well.
In class we are doing experiment with NevrDull and magazines. This is so much fun. NevrDull is a wadding polish that you use to rub off the ink.
Some of the part of the pages turn out great and some don't, which doesn't matter since I'll be cutting them up for collage.
Underneath the paper I am putting stamps, embossed wallpaper and other textured items. I even used embossing folders. I have been scouring the house looking for more texture ideas. This was a picture of a towel.
I love how these flowers now sort of look like people.
These were jewels and now they look really cool. I could play with these all day.
