I'm having fun with collage these days. This is a collection of torn papers glued on a piece of watercolor paper that I'd painted with acrylics. That's a bit of stitching along the bottom.

Moon Rise

A collage made mostly from photos cut from magazines. The bit of green along the bottom edge is an image transfer made by coating a magazine photo with several layers of matte medium. When it was dry, I soaked it in water for a few minutes to soften the paper, then rubbed it off. All that was left was the colored ink embedded in the medium, for a transparent image. Nice.

Snowflake With Thread 1

I've been experimenting lately with adding machine stitching to artwork. This has a painted background topped with a snowflake cut from plain white paper. I ran a few lines of stitching along the top.
