Day 17 Fish Out of Water

Fish Out of Water
Collage on paper 4 X 6

At first you see the fish shape on top, which I emphasized with acrylic then you see the  stamped fish that I placed below it. The top fish just "showed up" in the altered paper that I used, the bottom fish was a stamp I made from Styrofoam, stamped on tissue and coated with gloss medium. Then I heat sealed it to the collage like I do all the other pieces. Usually I don't know how a collage is going to turn out, I just keep playing with the possibilities until I like what I have. 


  1. I like your collage but I did see the bottom fish first! Good job. I need to learn about gel medium and how to seal my artwork.
