Illustration Friday Topic: Freeze




I submitted these to Illustration Friday. The topic was "Freeze." These are mixed media collages. Acrylic, india ink, and paper epehemera. Some of the paper epehemera was copies of a previous painting of mine torn or cut into smaller pieces. i.e. the cats, the candy cane, the string of lights. I rarely use purchased paper or images in my collages as I like to make my own. I am a fan of mulberry paper or other handmade papers that are thick and may have texture. I love using these in my collage pieces because when I tear it I like how the threads are exposed. These glue down lovely with a gel medium.

Namaste,
Darlene
