Of course I had to try it... so I spent a few days gathering and altering various papers. I finally found a use for all those citra-solved National Geographic Magazine pages. I went for the abstract landscape look. I made two collages, both are on the new Strathmore precut 8x10 watercolor sheets. The actual collage is approximately 4" x 6". Here's the one I call "Tidepool"
And this one is called "Sunrise"
I really liked making these, they were really fun to do once all the papers were prepared. And since I have LOTS of papers ready to go, I am definitely going to make more. The scans don't do them justice. The colors are so vibrant, a little charcoal shading adds depth, the layers add great texture. What do you think? Do I get my Collage Graduate Degree?
