As I said in the home page of the NEW My Way of Living, I'm so very happy for this renewal and I decided to launch it on my birthday as my own gift.
I have to thank my son Felipe for encouraging and helping me in this task.
(I will be updating this site for a few more months)
I did this collage on a corrugated cardboard covering it completely with newspaper. After that I painted the surface pouncing it with gray and beige gesso adding a few colors of acrylic paints to give it more interest. The papers as usual are bits and pieces of gelli prints, painted magazine pages, old book pages, etc. I stamped in a few places with gold paint and no added texture but the organic one the glue left when I covered the cardboard.
As you already may know I love collages and after three weeks out of town, I was eager to make one. I used tons of leftovers of die cuts, failed stamped images, gelli prints, paper I use to clean my brayer when painting or spraying and a few pieces of Thai paper. After I glued everything in place I started to sew randomly and in a very messy way.
