A Series of Striped Mixed Media Collages

Striped Collage: Process Video

Here is the first of what I assume will be many, many, many mixed media collages made from my gelatin printed striped papers.

I put together a short process video:

Monthly members have access the the real-time (about 30 minutes) version of this video.

As you can see in the video, I used Matte Medium to adhere the papers together and I didn't use a substrate of any kind.  This has positives and negatives.  On the positive side, you can make your collage any size.  It's also really nice and lightweight because it's just copy paper.  On the negative side, I find there is a lot more paper wrinkling than you might get with a substrate.  On the positive, I can easily attach this piece to a wood canvas or any other substrate.  On the negative side, it needs to be attached to something (maybe just a mat and backer board) to truly be "finished."

I hope you like stripes, because I foresee A LOT of striped collages in my future!

Thanks for stopping by.
