The collage started with gestural lines shapes and a layer of Gloss Medium. When I'm not sure where to start sometimes I introduce myself to the page with mark making. Knowing full well that I'll be covering it up.
Combining an array of marks and shapes...with an image transfer. I had a piece of tracing paper that I sewed on like a shower curtain.
This collage is set back into a Wood panel floating. The gnarly bits are carpet tacks and black waxed book thread.
