"Leaf" - what an original title!
Text pages were torn and glued onto cardstock then washed with 3 colors of acrylic paint, blue, green and yellow. Water thinned black acrylic was brushed over the dry paper and lifted off allowing some of the base colors to show. Gold wax was rubbed over the page to create texture and highlights. The "perfect" dried leaf was glued on and when pressed onto the page a piece of the leaf broke and a suprise bit of interest was born!

Fragment Series

Twisted paper, metal pieces on a crackled background. The distressed metal is from soda cans, my new favorite medium to use.
