Day 19 Strata

Strata
Collage 6 X 6

This is another piece with a calm color scheme. It still has the hand painted copy paper and the altered magazine pages like yesterday's collage but this one also has a piece of painted and stamped tissue in the middle which gives it the translucent look. I added the blue-green stamping for more interest. As always with my collages everything is coated with gloss medium before it is heat fused to the 140# substrate. Acrylic is added to the torn edges and then the piece is sealed with more gloss medium. When it has had time to cure I will coat it with acrylic UV varnish. It can be mounted on a wood or canvas panel or matted and framed.
