Collage is a welcome respite from the world of reality. It is a break from the tedious detailed work I usually do. I believe the freedom of it is what has made it a unanimous first choice for my students.I'm posting a collage that I completed as a demonstration for the students which includes 3-d elements. It's a cheerful party dress that will be inserted in a shadowbox frame.
The dress is made up of paper elements layered and bent to contribute to the form. The wood panel support was covered with a portion of a McCall's dress pattern and then stenciled over with a diamond design. I think a series of these dresses would make a really fun wall grouping.
Enjoy every day that comes your way, don't waste precious time and stay in the moment as much as possible!
All the best, Linda
