Featured Collage: It's All Such A Delicate Balance (8" x 8" Wall Art)
This week, I made a 4" x 4" card for my writing prompt called "It's All Such a Delicate Balance." I kind of fell in love with it and decided to make it into wall art. I had started an 8" x 8" collage using a new technique with plaster of paris and some faux aging paints. I was not happy with that result, so I just kept layering paper over the top until things started taking shape.
The surface of this collage is rough and bumpy in places, but I think it adds to the charm. In addition, I used copies of recipes handed down from family members and images of my Queen Anne's Lace collage in a few places. Old buttons and cording give it additional texture. This is unlike my other collages—a bit more spontaneous?—and I like the direction this is heading.
