WORK IN PROGRESS. Originally a 100% paper-based art collage. This digital collage began with paper, cut outs, acrylic paints, and gesso before its computer import. After artwork was scanned and imported, I modified colors and layered in the fonts. HOWEVER, I'm in the process of reworking this art collage with word cut outs and hand-lettering that will replace computer fonts. 2-page spread; 10 x 7 with landscape orientation.
Mixed media collage. Created with vintage lace trimmings, acrylic paints, cut photographs, fabrics, gesso, markers, and strips of masking tape for adding texture. 5x7 on Kraft paper.
Mixed media art collage. Created with vintage embroidered emblem, magazine-letter cutouts, stenciled numbers, hand-drawn cupcake (draw with fineliner and colored with oil pastels on newsprint), photocopied photograph, gesso, and matte medium. 10x10 on vintage book board..
