Scrapper Jude, please privately contact me with your postal mailing address. And my thanks go to everyone else who participated, too. Please watch for another freebie contest in a future post.




THREE COLLAGES WITH NATURAL OR FOUND MATERIALS

The first, below, includes a vintage book page, a real feather, and a piece of natural bone. I also added acrylic paint and a transfer.

This piece, with a "flying" theme, also uses bird's feathers, images, and acrylics. I incorporated fibers as well.

Finally, the collage/painting below is the most dimensional of the three, and the most textured.
I added gritty fillers to acrylic mediums, and found pieces of roadside trash with which to build up key areas.
non-objective, textured
9 x 13"
It's a non-objective work that I sealed with matte medium.
