A daily dose of collage creativity, in images, words and thoughts. Always remember, "Everything will be alright in the end...if it is not alright it must not be the End"

Working on some images for transfers






Been playing around in the studio...which by the way is a mess...so fast it gets that way...especially as I'm sampling things for class preparing and setting up the agenda...but I was looking for some old fashion magazines and I saw these images and I've altered them by sanding faces, cutting off arms and adding some smudge effect to it...or the urban grunge distressed look.  My favorite one is the first one with the woman in the leaning position and I added the long curly hair to her...I've got a 10 x 30 Clay board taped 2" sides with polymer on it and some papers picked out  doing the green thing as of colors. I would like to start bring the different voices together...Well I was suppose to be preparing for my other class today but got sidetracked in a good way.. with all the introspective work I've been doing some good rich emotion is stirring too.






Now this is just in my sketchbook of samples for class in the very beginning stages of mixing the acrylics with plastic wrap and then finding the flow be it ridged or organic.  This is also the place where you can find a place of interest.
