Day 16 Vortex

Collage, 6 X 6

Vortex is done in the  confined space composition style. It's another type of composition that I don't attempt very often. These 30 day works give me a chance to experiment once in awhile with things that are not tried a tried and true. The background is brown paper bag on which I have rubbed some gold acrylic paint. The collage itself is made up of tissue paper that has been hand painted randomly with gesso, acrylic paint, and gloss medium. There are a couple of small pieces of acrylic skin as well. All things that I wanted to try and see how well they would heat fuse. Most of it did pretty well. It was a fun exercise.
