Making Collage Art Again

Collage 3 X 5

Collage 3 X 5

I have a long narrow frame with a mat with 3 openings in which I thought 3 collages would work well. My problem was that I didn't measure the openings before I made the collages. I needed 4 X 6 and, as you can see, I made 3 X 5's. I'll just have to consider them practice and start over. But, I do like the way they turned out so I may be able to find a frame and mat that they will fit into. They are made with printed papers, altered magazine pages, hand painted papers, and acrylic gloss medium on watercolor paper.

  1. Hi Jan, always love your collages. I've made that same mistake with mat openings..
    I'm feeling ok .. actually going to Biloxi for 4 days over Thanksgiving. A few issues have cropped into my life, like glucose, blood pressure, kidney function?
    Not doing any 'real' painting as you see my sketches, but we get into a slump every once in a while and you too will come through it...We always do !!!
    P.S Do we need another 30 in 30 challenge? LOL !
