New Collage – “Suddenly She Knew”

October 30, 2012

Suddenly She Knew – Collage, 5×7″

This is another collage using hand painted papers, calligraphic squiggles, and doodles. My goal with these is a more fun an spontaneous approach.

The main background paper is tissue paper that I used to deposit leftover paint from my brayers. I save all of those! The buildup became a nice layered combination of colors, and there are accidental wrinkles in the paper as well, which I liked. The original doodle that ended up being sacrificed for this collage is pictured here in the upper right hand corner:

    Gorgeous colours and effects. I wonder “what she knew” – that she had produced a superb artwork perhaps? Have just had lesson where I’ve finished current effort with the help of my tutor. Homework is to do a better version. It has leaves.

      Sandra, that sounds like a very exciting course you’re taking. That title is one of many that I just grab from different sources and save for when they’re needed. I hate getting stuck for a title when I need one! 😉

    These pieces are simply fun….I am now saving every little bit from each new project…the clear envelop reminds me to play more often. Tomorrow I am hosting a inside Halloween pumpkin painting evening with a special movie and treats for each child. It is around 30 degrees tonight and will be colder tomorrow…I have made contact with my friends in new York. They are w/o power but still alive and realize it may be weeks before the recovery really begins. Peace, Mary Helen

      Mary Helen, I’m replying a little late, having already seen your pictures on facebook. What a wonderful evening for the kids!
