|A BIRD SONG- COLLAGE|
It is a wonderful form of art because you can use recycled and natural material that are easily found around the home. Like newspaper, old books and magazines, envelopes , onion skins, leaves that have partially decomposed, bark, tissue paper etc..... The list can go on and on. That isn't including the papers that you can purchase, like oriental washi papers, textured papers and home made papers. Then using your acrylic paints to glaze layers of colour.
Collage for me is about shapes and using negative and positive space. I also love the abstract quality that lends itself to the technique.
