Paper Collage Progress
This was my original inspiration piece..it's composed of a greeting card and some pics from a magazine!
This was the first crop I made from above....2.5"x3"
This was the first paper collage I made based on the crop above. It's only around 5.5" x 8" and I it is in my collage journal.
I made some patterns from the original crop after I enlarged it. This collage/piece will be 9"x12" finished.
I used tracing paper to make my patterns, which I then laid on my painted/dyed papers and cut out each segment.
This is the larger leaf with the veins fused on the leaf. I was going to just stitch the veins but decided to use some painted papers I already had. I'm thinking I will stitch stitch some dark black or blue threads on the leaf.
Playing around with different backgrounds/placements.
I like the green but still looking at all my papers I've made over the past year and a half.
This is my favorite background...not sure why but I think with hand stitching it might work well...so I've put this aside for a few days to 'cook' and for me to decide what background I want to use. I have so many cool papers so I'll keep digging!
