New Collages and More

 You can't keep an art brain quiet for long. 
Collage on an 8 x 10 mount board, which was a horrible salmon colour. Adverts from a French Magazine, Male image from 1954 Film Star Annual, words and lady from the front of the sheet music for the song.
 Book cover collage on same 8 x 10 mount board. London Illustrated News original page, with school lines written by hand, remember those? Hand coloured pictures from within the book, raised on paper rolls to give some depth.

 Collaged background, glazed with acrylic and glazing medium. Images from a Mabel Lucie Atwell Annual. Some hand coloured by me, some by a previous owner and some were colour printed. 14 x 10 mount.

 Collaged images from many sources. Glazed with acrylic paint and glazing medium, scraped with serrated plastic. Hand written words in white and black. Gold detail on the kingfishers. Brer Rabbit and friends are giving a bit of Sales Patter to the collaged folk. 20 x 16 multi apperture mount.

Close up so you can get a bit more detail. Hard sell to the kingfishers.

Lots more art done, but still on the laptop and bless its ancient and so slow! 

I've re-vamped the art room, moved all the fabric into a double wardrobe and set the garage up for messy art. Its really great to have a clear out and move round. You find stuff you had forgotten and it gets your mind seeing things anew. I will take some pictures soon.

Hope all my lovely followers are well. Looking forward to your comments. My friend Val is coming round on Saturday and I bet she comments on the lack of boxes and the fact that she can sit on the sofas!

    1. Thank you so much Linda. It was great to have you round and Cherry. Can I let you into a secret? I don't know how my arty head works either :-) I just fiddle about with my scissors and glue and stuff happens. xJ
