Collage Demo

Today Carmen Beecher and I gave a talk to the Cape Canaveral Pen Women about collage.  We both have very different styles so we were able to cover several methods of this versatile medium   My style is to use many different types of paper depending on the subject and the mood I am trying to convey.  I use everything from tissue to sheet music to old road maps.  I also like to hand color papers when I can.
I brought in several examples of my collages so they could see my methods and how I tried to "paint a picture" using paper.

This Teapot was a good example of using both magazines papers and other found papers, including an actual teabag label. 

This Farmscene has lots of texture.  I loved the paper I used for the sky, it reminded me of Van Gogh's Starry Night.
