Collage Party

Last week, my art group went to Paula’s house and worked on a layered collage. We used a variety of papers, thin fabrics and painted fusible. Then each layer could be printed, painted, or more layers added. Paula had all the stuff ready to go and we each created a very different collage.

This one is mine. The white “writing” was done by Paula. Her specialty, “Goddess writing”.

This one is Louise’s.

This one is Paula’s.

And here is Sally’s. Deb had to leave early so she didn’t get to make one. But we are going to make more next month too.

Isn’t it interesting how they are all so different? Hope you have a great weekend.

Two More Collages

Here is another one of the texture collages that I have made for class.

This one is very dimensional and I have decided to call it Spelunking.

Here you can see more of the dimensional aspect of the piece. It is essentially a sample but I think it might be interesting framed in a shadow box frame.

Here’s collage I completed today. I had all of the pieces together but I had forgotten about it. So I found it today and glued it together. I completed a torn paper collage today as well but it is in the process of being flattened as it has tons of paper glued down and it got really warped. Hopefully, I can get it to calm down and lay flat. Perhaps I should do that too 😉

Books Full of Prints

I used up most of the pages I painted last week by filling this notebook with extended prints and collages. I was planning on using the cover I had made a few months ago but the holes were off.  So it ended up being the plain cover on the left. If I have time, I will cover that notebook too. Just have to decide with what. I would like to do a bit of paint pouring on a cover but not sure I have time.

Here are a few of the page spreads. The hardest part is putting them in an order that works with the color on the back of the previous page. I just realized that all of these are tree related but I promise there are other collages and prints that aren’t about trees.

And this is the cover of my larger notebook. This page actually started as a 12″ x 12″ sheet and it needed trimming. I just trimmed where I liked the composition. Then when I was finished with it, I realized it was the exact size to fit correctly on this notebook. I like it when a plan comes together 😉

Fused Paper/Fabric

My art group got together last week and made fused paper/fabric. This is a different technique than the paper fabric lamination that I do. This one involves using fusible and ironing the paper and the fabric together. We also added Pearl Ex Powders to get a little bling and glam.

Here’s Deb working on her creations. Somehow, I didn’t get any photos of her finished pieces. Sorry Deb!

Here’s Louise and Sally working away.

These two are Louise’s creations.

These are Sally’s creations. Doesn’t that middle one look like a birthday party?

Here are mine. I was planning on using these for some of my collages for class homework so I made some “matching” pieces that go together.

But when I started making collages, I didn’t end up using the pieces I thought would go together. Here’s one that hasn’t been glued together yet.

Here’s another collage I did. The background is stamped and painted fusible adhered to black paper. I cut the leaves from my other piece of fused paper/fabric.

Thanks once again for stopping by, leaving comments and cheering me on in my fiber art pursuits. I appreciate everyone’s compliments and suggestions. I hope you and yours have the best of holidays and a creative New Year.
