I did finish this collage today. Its nice-not quite the style I normally do, but I just went with the flow. I found the picture of the old house, and used peerless watercolors on it, painted a canvas and just took it from there. My husband REALLY liked this one. He doesn't really comment on much, but surprisingly today he did.
Like I mentioned, just not quite what my normal taste is, but here's what I did. A friend that came by today told me she would buy something like that .......so I guess its not all bad.
Its SO hard to photograph these things..........but I did the best I could :)
The house sort of reminds me of the one I grew up in. I LOVE old pics and find them so inspiring to look at. Each tells its own story. I named this "Letters Home" because of the old letter here, as well as the envelope. With the picture of the house, the name fit.
9x12 canvas, old letters , book pages, envelope, old photo , watercolors, caran d'ache crayons, acrylics, handmade papers. melted crayon on the edges, as well as molding paste for texture.
