Three Little Abstracts
Abstract Collage Sunset
Abstract Collage With Face and R
Abstract Collage With Face
These abstracts are only 3.5 X 4.5 to fit in a 5 X 7 mat and frame. They are all made without regular adhesives and are pressed together with a heat sealing iron. I love being able to lay out my collage and move the papers around, then, when I've decided it's just the way I want it, I heat up the iron and press it together. The next step is to rub a little compatible acrylic color over it with a baby wipe. This gives it a thin coat that unifies the piece. Almost all the papers are altered or colored by hand so I can always find the colors that I like to work with because I've made them myself.
I've also been taking a class in painting abstracts in acrylics. If I get a "good one" I'll post it too.
