Picture It Digital Collage.
This is an example of what can be done with ordinary photographs: Palm frond, statue, park, peeling paint on a Mission wall and a Mission door. Text and stars were added.

Asian Assemblage

This assemblage is for a techniques AB.
The skewers are wrapped with distressed metal and copper wire. The image (manipulated) purchased at the Antiques Mall is a toner copy heat transfer using my newest toy, a transfer tip. Background is a thick coat of titanium paint with Quinacridone Gold brushed through it and textured with a plastic card.

Martha's Vineyard

Metal is nearly impossible to scan or photograph, at least that has been my experience.

The backgrounds are gesso and water-soluble pastels. The Victorian images were inkjet printed on transparency film and adhered to metal. Dymo words say, "Martha's Vineyard." And two embossed metal embellishments complete this spread for a techniques AB.

Winter Sunset

I rarely use the rubber stamps I've collected, why I don't know, but this page for an AB seemed to be the perfect combination. I especially like the tree on the right edge of the page.

Oil pastels were randomly scribbled onto cardstock, Aleene's Tacky glue was coated over the entire page and a watered-down green grey acrylic was brushed over the glue. When the acrylic paint dries a nice crackle effect takes place.

Listen. Make a way for
inside yourself.
Stop looking
in the other way of looking.
