Tack Down Tuesday #2-July

Dragonfly Dance
8 x 8 collage on watercolor paper, matted 2" all sides ready for framing

Materials: White lunch bag with gessoed surface and acrylic glazing, old book pages, Kraft paper gessoed and textured surface with acrylic glazing, painted drawing paper, Nat. Geo. magazines altered with Nevr Dull. Color laser image transfers and black cat tail image transfer, fused to surface with tack iron and finished with satin UV varnish.

Meaning of the Art: This piece was created for the many times I walk pass the tall grass prairie path in the woods where the dragonflies hover and around the bend in the bushes are handfuls of ripe berries. Summer at it fullest.



  1. Laura this is a beautiful collage!!
    I love the color scheme and the delicacy of the theme!!

  2. Laura... this is beautiful!!! You must have an abundance of gorgeous pre-painted bits and pieces. Am just learning about image transfer.
