For the last couple of days, I’ve been going back to my roots, so to speak, to my first creative activity passion, playing with vintage papers/mixed media collage. Continuing with the urban decay theme, I’m experimenting with getting the same effect with paper and paint. Here’s my progress so far (yes, I realize the building doesn’t line up; I’m playing at this point. 🙂 )
When using vintage papers in my work, I’m curious about the original owners of these papers, their lives, families, sorrows, and joys. I love the idea of taking a little piece of another’s history and incorporating it into my own pieces. This piece is far from finished; there will ultimately be more layers and paper and paint. I hope you’ll stay with me.
