Collage

Today I worked on making paper flowers inspired by Tim Holtz, and several mixed media collages.  The collage I am sharing today started several weeks ago as a painting of a face.  I didn't like where the painting was going, so I gessoed over it and started a collage.  The collage is one of many techniques that I learned from Chris Cozen and Julie Pritchard on the Land of the Lost Luggage network.  This one is similar to ones I have posted recently except this one has an image transfer as opposed to a tracing.  It really became mixed media with the addition of the buttons.  I plan to place a print of this and several other collages in my Etsy Shop over the next few days.  Hope you will stop by for a visit.  www.patc9195.etsy.com
