collage of work


Hi all.
i have done a collage photo of the work i have been playing around with, mostly books for Maggie's online class. plus an altered paper gift bag and a paper collage page. The book in the box, was a charity shop find, a childrens note block., made the cover for book with craft foam and used the paper that came with set as pages, the mini book in a box, didn't have a little match box so used the box from mini set of cards, the shrink plastic was a bit hit and miss, and also i only had a couple of sheets left. but luckily the book just fits the box with a squeeze, the taller book also from shrink plastic, not perfect as one of the holes broke to close to edge. i also made a book from the circle pieces from earlier samples.
The paper gift bag. i covered in gesso and added scrim, sprayed with colour wash and added highlights and a tag.
hope your all having a good week? don't forget there is two awards for you to collect from previous post.
Thanks for visiting and leaving comments, i do not always get around to replies , but do try and visit you all and leave comments.
