2017 30 Day Challenge Day 6

The Blues 1
Collage, mixed media 6 X 6

A heat fused collage of 7 different papers; hand textured and painted craft paper, painted coffee filter, painted deli paper, security envelope, Chinese paper, script on tissue and music on tissue. When I get excited about using some of my papers I find it's hard to limit  my choices. Usually I try to limit it to 5 but in this case the music and script were similar enough to balance the composition. This is the first in a series of 4 exploring the use of these papers. I also used white acrylic paint to stamp circles and lines and an ink stamping of palms. It's been coated with acrylic and UV varnish ready to frame.

I started watercolor painting earnestly in 1991 after I moved to Florida. My husband and I are retired, and we are both artists. We both have works displayed  at the Wildchild Gallery in Matlacha Florida.
