I think I got a little of my mojoe back. Finally finished the Asian themed collage I started several weeks ago. Yesterday I got an idea and sat down with some of my wool scraps and some buttons. Several coats of gel medium later, finished.
Compassion, 11" x 14" on Mat Board
I also wanted to try a piece with more layers then I usually do. I really enjoy working with the 8" x 8" canvases with the deeper sides. When finished you have a stand alone piece, it doesn't have to hang on a wall but can sit on a shelf. I like how each layers mutes the last. I also tried for the first time mixing a little paint with the gel medium to get a more transparent effect. I'm excited to try it again. I bought a more porous roller that leaves a more uneven effect. No buttons on this one. Some handmade papers, tissue, printed Chinese alphabet and a little embellishments.
