PROCESS

“Starts with a piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper, a gathering of collage papers coated with polymer medium a color scheme is chosen. Inklings of thoughts to use edges of the torn and irregular papers spark inspiration and drums up a challenge. Can this all come together and be something? The rules are set forth, “leave the edge as it is do not cut it off to make it straight.” Layering with a sense of design textures, colors and shapes a foundation is constructed. Leaving space for the altered image transfer made from a magazine model silhouette pose. Conscious of patterns and the repetition that can heighten the image to merge with the background, layers of more paper and stamping are created. Contrast and cohesive all papers and images are fused together with heat from a tack iron. Machine stitch is added, raw element dangle, glazing and shadowing allow for depth and dimension. The words tell her story.”
