My mom invited me to an afternoon of collage at her place, and this was the result! I went into it without a plan, just thinking I wanted something for my citrus-themed bathroom.
The base is a used canvas covered in ripped book pages, then washed with white paint.
Painted my general outline for the paper segments, and picked a different paper for each one (some are one paper on top of another - like the doily over a solid color, or tissue paper over a library card.
Then everything got a wash of mod podge tinted with yellow paint, just to bring all the bits to more of the same level.
It still didn’t feel done, so tonight I started doodling with copic markers. Now that I’ve posted it here I think I can convince myself it’s finished!
Hanging on the wall!
