Texture Collages

I showed some of these over on the Felting and Fiber Studio. If you missed them, you can see them here. I have a bunch more to complete so I work on them a bit at a time. One of the issues is drying time between layers which takes at least 2-3 days. So I have them in every stage of completion. They are spread out all over the house, I am sure that hubby is loving that!

These are made with a variety of paper, fabric or foam. Then multiple layers of paint are added until I am satisfied with the outcome. There’s a couple that might be a total loss but I haven’t given up on them yet. Perhaps I will show you those later 🙂

This one kind of looks like some kind of skeleton embedded in the ground, do you see it?

This one has some metallic highlights. Usually I’m not much of shiny loving gal but it’s OK in small amounts.

It’s funny when I started these, I didn’t have a real plan as to what most of them would look like. So each one is different and I kind of go with what I see in them as I add layers of paint. So they tend to morph from one thing to another until I settle on what the final outcome will be.

    • Thanks Antje! Perhaps I’ll be famous with my new archaeological find 😉 I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet but perhaps some of them will end up framed.

  1. These textures are great, both here and over on F&F.

    How large are they? I think they could be really impressive on a grand scale – though hubby might object even more. 😉

  2. Love all these textures with mixed media. I don’t know how I missed this post. Skeletons for sure. My fav is the last one. Yes, I love bling.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
