New Projects in the Studio

November 9, 2010

First, here is one of my newest collages . . .

“Fading Memory” – Collage, 4 x 4″

And I am excited about pursuing a new project. I have been finding antique books that have interesting illustrations and have begun scanning the images, because I don’t want to damage the books themselves, but I want to create collections of high resolution images for collage artists to use in their creations.

You may have seen some of the “Magic Collage Sheets” that I’ve created to sell as downloads in my Etsy shop, also incorporating images from antique books and magazines. I’m happy to report that more will be added to the site soon.  My new sheets will be individual pictures, several to a page, rather than overlapping them the way I’ve done in the Magic Collage Sheets. I’ve found some really delicious imagery, such as old physician’s manuals and nature encyclopedias. Not only are these going to be great fun for my own collages, I want to make them available to other artists. The possibilities for these are infinite, and no matter how many different ways they are used, each creation will be an original.

Here are some examples of the new images. I’ll let you know when I have these new collections up on the site.

I like the idea of including snippets of the text along with the pictures.

And there’s this. I’m also creating a new series of digital images combining my photographs of flowers with some grunge textures. Those may possibly become available as collage sheets as well. These are just in the experimental stages right now.

So this week I’m going back and forth between getting glue and paint all over my fingers and the nice, clean pristine world of digital art.

    These are great, Martha. And what a great idea to add them to your Etsy shop! I’m going to look through my stash of stuff, maybe I can send some your way. Have fun.
